This talk on Empowerment was presented to neuroscientists at the Instituto de Neurociencias de Alicante. The Behavioural Empowerment Hypothesis(Salge et al.) states that evolution has produced organisms that in absence of specific goals behave as if they were maximising their empowerment. Thanks to innovations in variational inference, evaluating variations of this hypothesis is now possible and this would also enable behavioural scientists to develop plausible models of animal behaviour.
