Exponential Times

Here is an interesting youTube video that Erica H. sent my way.

It is thought provoking. I liked the theme of exponentiality.  It was memorable and organized the “factoids” well.

Just a teaser here… my ideas are influenced by a book by Jeff Hawkins entitled “On Intelligence.” It really is a wonderful book, if you like the popular science genre.  I think this book is a big reason why my son is now studying biochemistry and neuroscience in college now.

Hey thanks to everyone for another great week at the Innovations Lab.

I’ll see you on the web!
