Regimes of Expectation: An Active Inference Model of Social Comformity and Human Decision Making
Regimes of Expectations: An Active Inference Model of Social Conformity and Human Decision Making
How do humans come to acquire shared expectations about how they ought to behave in distinct normalized social settings? This paper offers a normative framework to answer this question. We introduce the computational construct of 'deontic value' - based on active inference and Markov decision processes - to formalize conceptions of social conformity and human decision-making.
