God, the devil, and the details: Fleshing out the predictive processing framework

  • Daniel Rasmussen (a1) and Chris Eliasmith (a1)

The predictive processing framework lacks many of the architectural and implementational details needed to fully investigate or evaluate the ideas it presents. One way to begin to fill in these details is by turning to standard control-theoretic descriptions of these types of systems (e.g., Kalman filters), and by building complex, unified computational models in biologically realistic neural simulations.
