Steve, Are you familiar with Numenta? Jeff Hawkins would approve of your emphasis on reverse-engineering the brain.

I've heard a couple of Hawkins' talks and tend to share some of his views on AI. IIRC, Numenta's technology is a brain architecture inspired neural net algorithm.

You know, I would really love to see a conversation between Jeff Hawkins and Daniel Dennett on stage at MSU. Maybe one or two others neuroscience types to round it out as a 'panel discussion' or something. But it's those two I'm fixated on. I don't know that they've ever met or spoken to each other. Call it "Innovation at MSU" or something, invent some related topics and make a series of it. Seems like something you could really get done if you set your mind to it.

I like Dennett but was underwhelmed by Consciousness Explained when I read it many years ago. Still, the conversation you ask for would be interesting.
