Bayesian Cognition

International workshop on probabilistic models of perception, inference, reasoning, decision, action, learning and neural processing

WORKSHOP: Paris, January 16 - 18, 2006

Thanks for attending our workshop !

Animals and artificial systems alike are faced with the problem of making inferences about their environments and choosing appropriate responses based on incomplete, uncertain and noisy data.

Probabilistic models and algorithms are flourishing in both life sciences an information sciences as ways of understanding the behavior of subjects and the neural processing underlying this behavior, and building robots and artificial agents that can function effectively in such circumstances.

This workshop will gather life and information scientists to discuss the latest advances in this subject, specifically addressing the following topics:

  •  probability theory as an alternative to logic
  •  probabilistic models of neurons and assembly of neurons
  •  probabilistic models of CNS functionality
  •  probabilistic interpretation of psychological and psychophysical data
  •  probabilistic inference and learning algorithms
  •  probabilistic robotics
