PRECISE Brains: Predictive coding, inference and unsupervised learning organized by Giovanni Pezzulo, Cyriel Pennartz, Lars Muckli and Christopher Summerfield An overarching theoretical framework is emerging that describes the brain as a predictive machine, which acquires internal generative models (mostly, in unsupervised way) and uses them to continuously infer what is out there (perception) and what to do (action). However, the theory is incompletely specified and different researchers have different intuitions about it. Furthermore, the ways the brain might implement predictive processing and inference remains poorly understood. This workshop brings together modelers and neuroscientists to develop a research agenda within HBP to study the mechanisms of predictive coding, inference and unsupervised learning (PRECISE brains). The 2-day workshop focuses on two main questions, of "formalizing precise brains" (day 1) and "testing precise brains empirically" (day 2).
