Play is more than just fun: Dr. Stuart Brown

It has been a common concept that physical exercises and play in childhood develops into healthy and intelligent adults. However, Dr. Stuart Brown pioneered a scientific research on the issue and proved it as a fact.

Discover Magazine commented: "Finally, a good excuse be goof off... Brown builds a compelling case for the importance of recreation to success and creativity."

I like first part of comments. I admit to play iess in my early childhood so I am an average (lol).

A new equation for intelligence: Alex Wissner-Gross

The physicist and computer scientist Alex Wissner-Gross explains what in the world that means. He lately thought: Why have we searched for so long to understand intelligence? Can it really be this elusive? His latest work posits that intelligence can indeed be defined physically, as a dynamic force, rather than a static property. He explains intelligence in terms of causal entropic forces, ultimately defining it as "a force to maximize future freedom of action.

Wissner-Gross is a fellow at the Harvard Institute for Applied Computational Science and a research affiliate at the MIT Media Lab. He has a Ph.D. in physics from Harvard and bachelor's degrees in physics, electrical science and engineering, and mathematics from MIT.

How brain sceince will change computing? Jeff Hawkins

In his book On Intelligence (2004) Jeff Hawkins lays out his compelling, controversial theory: Contrary to popular AI wisdom, the human neocortex doesn't work like a processor; rather, it relies on a memory system that stores and plays back experiences to help us predict, intelligently, what will happen next. He thinks that "hierarchical temporal memory" computer platforms, which mimic this functionality (and which Numenta might pioneer), could enable groundbreaking new applications that could powerfully extend human intelligence.
