The Future of Prediction

(p.295) 10 Conclusions
Surfing Uncertainty

Andy Clark

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes the book’s main argument and highlights some issues that require further attention. One such issue concerns the need to explore a much larger space of approximations and of possible representational forms. A second issue concerns the need to explore multiple variant neural architectures. A third set of challenges concerns the extension of these accounts into the intuitively ‘higher level’ domains of long-term planning, cognitive control, and explicit, linguistically inflected, reasoning. The chapter also highlights the various shifts in emphasis required to bring the vision of the predictive brain into full and fruitful contact with that of the embodied mind. The predictive brain must be revealed as a node in a constant two-way flow in which the inner (neural) organization is open to constant reconfiguration by external (bodily and environmental) factors and forces, and vice versa.

Keywords:   approximations, representational forms, predictive brain, embodied mind, planning, control
