Perception as Prediction

What is perception? What does the world believe perception is? How does supervised learning model perception? Presumably through labeled data? What does Reinforcement Learning suggest perception is? State and action combinations? Where are these 2 fields right? Where are they wrong? Where are they common? Is perception the same as prediction? Is perception just opportunity for action? Perhaps an opportunity for interaction (action implies I’m acting on an object, when perhaps the object could act on me.) Furthermore, maybe I only perceive things that do in fact pose opportunities to interact with. A near infinite amount of things pass by in day to day life without notice.

These questions warrant consideration given the current state of artificial intelligence (and my understanding of it!).
