Description:

In his new book, "The World Is A Song," neuroscientist Jeff Hawkins uses our musical savvy to model all human intelligence. He describes a brain that relentlessly looks for patterns over time, like melodies; creates hierarchical structures, like verses and choruses; and makes predictions based on these stored patterns, just as we anticipate the next note of a tune. This Science Update also contains in text format details of the research, which leads to these findings presented in the Science Update podcast. It also offers links to the other podcasts topics and resources for further inquiry.
