CascadiaPrime Cognition - Blogs, websites and Social Media

An intelligent landscape is being created and/or thought about deeply by individuals dotted all over the globe. Some of them have blogs and websites where they share their thoughts and aspirations. This is a start on a list of some of the thought leaders working to build and anticipate the intelligent landscape. They range from philosphers to scientists and technologists in the trenches.

The terms artificial general Intelligence, artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, neuromorphic computing, synaptic computing, big data, contextual computing, broadband communications, mobile computing and the internet all compartmentalize and really do not capture the wholistic tensor nature of what is now occurring. As this list grows the full interdisciplinary aspects of the intelligent landscape will become more evident.
