Whatever Next? Predictive Brains, Situated Agents, and the Future of Cognitive Science

Coming soon in Behavioral and Brain Sciences – a target article by Andy Clark: Abstract: Brains, it has recently been argued, are essentially prediction machines. They are bundles of cells that support perception and action by constantly attempting to match incoming sensory inputs with top-down expectations or predictions. This is achieved using a hierarchical generative model that aims…

In 1998, A. Clark and D. Chalmers proposed the “extended mind” concept, where the workings of our mind actually extend beyond the brain…
