The 21st century has witnessed an exponential increase on scientists’ interest in Bayesianism. The Bayes theorem is a simple equation in probability theory that gave rise to new theoretical and methodological approaches in philosophy of science, statistics, psychology and neuroscience. Although the simplest version of the Bayes theorem is computationally relatively easy to solve, we humans are very bad at doing so. After introducing the general ideas underlying Bayesian approaches, in this seminar Associate Professor Guillermo Campitelli will show research in Bayesian reasoning, depict his expertise approach to explain results, and present his research inspired by that approach. In the second part of the seminar, he will introduce Bayesian approaches in statistics and his view on how they could help psychologists improve their research practices.
