This podcast is episode 2 of 4 recorded at Ambition Empower Autumn 2022

We take a dive into neuroscience and metacognition. Thinking about thinking and thinking about other minds. We are joined by Professor Stephen Fleming, neuroscientist and author of the book Know Thyself to learn more about how our cognition works and the implications for our work as mind-creating creatives and in the development of AI.

We discuss metacognition, self-realisation, prediction error signals and dopamine, theory of mind, AIs and confidence estimation, 

“Metacognition literally means cognition, about cognition, or thinking about thinking. So it’s the capacity we have this weird and wonderful capacity, we have as humans to reflect on a know something about the operation of our own minds.”
