Brains, Big Data, and Business: Jeff Hawkins in Conversation with Michael Chui


Jeff Hawkins, Co-founder, Numenta

Michael Chui, Principal, McKinsey Global Institute

  Jeff Hawkins, legendary founder of Palm Computing and Handspring, and architect of the PalmPilot PDA and Treo smart phone, has been called, “one of the great technological and design geniuses of recent times.” Hawkins is also known for his research in brain theory and creating the Redwood Neuroscience Institute.

Now co-founder of Numenta, Hawkins and his team have created an alternative approach to big data, using brain-inspired machine learning technology and a cloud-based service called Grok that recognizes complex patterns from data streams and generates actionable predictions in real time. Hawkins sees a future where data flows from billions of sources—the internet of things—and is acted on immediately and automatically.

Here’s your chance to get inside the head of one of Silicon Valley’s star entrepreneurs: what are his unique perspectives on how the human brain works, and the implications for extracting value from big data? What are his lessons learned building multiple successful companies? Hawkins will be led in lively conversation by McKinsey Principal Michael Chui, co-author of influential reports on topics such as big data, the internet of things, and social media.
