PRESENTATION

Sciences in Context is a series of public lectures organized in collaboration with the Institut d'études avancées de Paris by Muriel Mambrini and Pascal Kolbe, aimed at bringing new concepts and perspectives from the frontiers of the social sciences to the CRI community and beyond. The topics of the conference is prepared at a public session of the Practical Philosophy Club on the Friday before each conference, in order to encourage discussion with the guest speaker.

SUBJECT OF THE CONFERENCE

In executing any speeded movement, there is uncertainty about the outcome. A large part of the uncertainty is due to perceptual and motor variability. In economic environments where the possible outcomes of any movement carry reward or punishment, your plans and decisions should reflect knowledge of your own uncertainty, a form of metacognition. In this talk, Laurence T Maloney will present a Bayesian (based on probabilities) theoretic decision model of ideal movement planning based on metacognition, and describe recent experiments testing the model
