About the seminar

Treating belief formation as inference allows the link between the receipt of information and the resultant changes in beliefs to be parameterized, where the link disappears in extremis. The justification for this model can take the form of experimental evidence against (Quasi-) Bayesian adjustment, or can be calculated as a fully rational response to a cost of adjustment. Both justifications will be outlined, together with some of the modelling uses of inferential expectations. 

Please Note:  There is no paper available and this talk is drawing from a number of different sources.
