Numenta Platform for Intelligent Computing

The Numenta Platform for Intelligent Computing (NuPIC) is a machine intelligence platform that implements the HTM learning algorithms. HTM is a detailed computational theory of the neocortex. At the core of HTM are time-based continuous learning algorithms that store and recall spatial and temporal patterns. NuPIC is suited to a variety of problems, particularly anomaly detection and prediction of streaming data sources.

For more information, see or the NuPIC wiki.

Installing NuPIC 0.4.5

NuPIC binaries are available for:

  • Linux x86 64bit
  • OS X 10.9
  • OS X 10.10
  • Windows 64bit


Install OS X

First, you must install Xcode command line tools, which will get you a C++ compiler.

pip install nupic

Install Linux

NOTE: The nupic.bindings binary distribution is not stored on PyPi along with the OS X distribution. NuPIC uses the wheel binary format, and PyPi does not support hosting Linux wheel files. So we are forced to host our own.

Your version of Linux probably has a C compiler installed. Be sure you have either clang or GCC 4.8.

pip install
pip install nupic

Install Windows

pip install nupic

For problems installing NuPIC, please see our Installation and Build Wiki.


# From the root of the repo:
py.test tests/unit

Having problems?

  • You may need to use the --user flag for the commands above to install in a non-system location (depends on your environment). Alternatively, you can execute the pip commands with sudo (not recommended).
  • You may need to add the --use-wheel option if you have an older pip version (wheels are now the default binary package format for pip).

For any other installation issues, please see our FAQ, email the nupic-discuss mailing list, or chat with us on Gitter.
