Opening remarks by OSCON program chairs, Sarah Novotny, Matthew McCullough and Edd Dumbill.
Jeff Hawkins will describe Numenta's vision for machine intelligence. He will give a brief introduction to the technology and describe why Numenta is creating an open source project.
Free and open source software is equal parts technology and humanity. Beyond the coding standards, development environments and essential parts of delivering free software the ideals that drive this movement are powerful. This is a reflection on the lessons gleaned from successful F/LOSS communities and a call to action to spread their ideals to other endeavors such as medicine and government.
Russ will discuss the decisive competitive edge companies like (mt) Media Temple gains and gives with Open Source programmers.

Learning the syntax of a new language is easy, but learning to think under a different paradigm is hard. This session helps you transition from an object-oriented imperative programmer to a functional programmer, using Java, Clojure and Scala for examples.
This new open source library is based concepts first described in
Jeff Hawkins' book On Intelligence and subsequently developed by
Numenta Inc. NuPIC consists of a set of machine learning algorithms
that accurately model layers of neurons in the neocortex. NuPIC's
algorithms continuously learn temporal patterns, make predictions,
and detect anomalous behavior within streaming data.
Audience level: Novice
This talk will highlight some of the great tools that are available to teach children how much fun coding is. Also some of the different formats used for reaching kids.
