Jeff Hawkins - The Future of AI

This is an old TED talk from 2003, but really interesting nonetheless (especially because I just watched it). Jeff Hawkins, neuroscientist and computer engineer, talking about the breakthrough concept that will make artificial intelligence more useful and integrated in every day life - prediction. He talks fast and a bit like he's on speed, but he has some brilliant insights into what it is about human intelligence that is so powerful.

He makes a good point about the sci-fi vs. pragmatic reality of AI - that we're not as likely to see smarter robots as we are to see things like smarter cars and security systems.
