Discussion article for the meetup : Moscow: bayes, language and psychology, now with homework

WHEN: 04 January 2015 03:00:00PM (+0400)

WHERE: Moscow, ulitsa L'va Tolstogo 16

Hello there.

If you don't have plans for the Sunday but aware of Bayes' theorem in odds form, you certainly will be welcome here.

Our plan for 4th is:

  • Victor will try to explain the device of imaginary results by I J Good, himself gaining a deeper understanding of it in the process (yup, it's the same guy who posted this. I'm still a bit confused about Caesar, but I think I understand the big picture now. Let's tackle this together, it should be interesting and educating);

  • Varman will give a short talk on exosemantics. Surprisingly, the usual lack of political correctness isn't included (but counter-signalling and in-group bashing are still here, of course)

  • Natalia will tell you why do you need to know the very basics of behaviorism to properly analyze things like social interactions, and how exactly the use of more complex models could led you to a trouble.

Please do your homework and make sure you are familiar with the odds form of Bayes' theorem and know something about biofeedback.

PS: No, we aren't implying that behaviorism is enough to understand things. But it is necessary.
