Workshop: Confluences in Models of Rationality, Leuven (Belgium


Confluences in Models of Rationality
KU Leuven, Belgium
30 May 2010

This one-day workshop will bring together members of the philosophy and artificial intelligence communities, to discuss analogies and points of contact between different bodies of research that offer formal models of various aspects of rationality.
The event is timed to coincide with a local meeting of the Rationality and Decisions network. This network connects approximately 25 researchers, both senior and junior, from a group of institutions that includes KU Leuven, the London School of Economics, the University of Amsterdam, the University of Groningen, the University of Lund, the University of Kent and the University of Tilburg. Needless to say that we anticipate a productive and insightful Q&A session!


13:30  14:00 Welcome.
14:00  15:20 Hans Rott (Professor of Philosophy, University of Regensburg): Belief formation and rational choice: projects and problems.
15:30  16:50 Didier Dubois (Professor of Computer Science, IRIT, University of Toulouse): Possibility theory and the representation of incomplete information: ordinal and numerical approaches.
16:50  17:10 Coffee break
17:10  18:30 Vladimir Vovk (Professor of Computer Science, Royal Holloway, University of London): Can game-theoretic probability be useful in the philosophy of science?

The workshop will take place in Room 02.40 of the second floor of the Van den Heuvelinstituut (just to your left as you come up the main stairs). The Van den Heuvelinstituut is located on the corner of Dekenstraat and Andreas Vesaliusstraat, southeast of the city centre.

There are no participation fees. Registration is not required.

Confluences in Models of Rationality is kindly sponsored by the Benelux Association for Artificial Intelligence (BNVKI) and the KU Leuven Formal Epistemology Project.
