Thinking Ahead: human planning from a predictive processing perspective

Project description

Exploring human planning in the face of uncertainties

People have the ability to make plans and formulate problem-solving strategies, either alone or in groups. While these processes are considered remarkable, it is not clear how they are formed. In this context, the EU-funded ThinkAhead project will explore how people plan in the face of uncertainty about task structure, action sequences, and the contributions of self and others to cooperative plans. Specifically, it will investigate a novel theory that considers human planning from the perspective of probabilistic inference based on hierarchical predictive codes made up of compressed information or task abstractions. By combining experimental and computational modelling methods, the project will seek to validate the novel theory.
