3.3 The consensus conference concept
There are a wide range of interactions between ‘science’ and ‘the public’. Examples range from visiting a museum, or indulging in a science-related hobby, to reading a newspaper article about a breakthrough in the techniques of therapeutic cloning. Many of these interactions could be said to be ‘passive’. This unit explores the practicalities of the public becoming more ‘active’ in the direction of science practice by ‘two-way’ interactions, with dialogue taking place between

Bayesian Reasoning with Graphical Models
This course motivates and introduces graphical models (with special attention to Bayesian networks) as well consolidated and popular tools with the ability to represent knowledge under uncertainty and reason with it, one of the main challenges in building intelligent systems in Artificial Intelligence. Uncertainty is modelled with probability theory and reasoning is based on Bayes’ rule. Bayesian networks represent factorizations of joint probability distributions. Nodes represent the variable
