A Genuine and Novel Framework
Jeff presents a novel approach to solving the general intelligence problem in machines without attempting to indoctrinate his audience into a naive belief system veiled in theoretical clothing.
He doesn't over value his insights and doesn't spare any of the fine low level details that other authors on the subject tend to withhold or over generalize.
Jeff is passionate but is grounded in science and practicality.
I suggest that readers that do not already possess a background in machine learning and computer science to first read "The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood" by James Gleick, as it provides a strong historical foundation on artificial intelligence that is largely absent from "On Intelligence".
Plausible and compelling story of how intelligence works
Jeff Hawkins tackles the subject of how the brain works 'head on' - pun intended :-) This book is both deep and accessible. A more timid soul would would not have had the ambition and hubris to tackle a subject covered by many brilliant minds and bearing so much academic weight. Jeff's legacy is this writing and research. His creation of the pda industry, the smartphone and his futurism were side-effects and side-stories to this passion. Whether researching AI, soul seeking or wishing to understand memory, this is an essential read. In the spirit of full disclosure, I used to work with Jeff at Handspring - not as a friend but as an employee inspired to work with a great mind.
