Why do we remember? The communicative function of episodic memory

Johannes B. Mahr, Gergely Csibra
2017 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
In this process, autonoesis corresponds to the capacity to determine when and how to assert epistemic authority in making claims about the past.  ...  The generative nature of recollection allows us to represent and communicate the reasons why we hold certain beliefs about the past.  ...  This technique leverages the power of our episodic memory to embed trivial information within a rich context of associations involving temporal order, spatial context, and interaction with the self.  ...

Contextual Integrity and Privacy Enforcing Norms for Virtual Communities

Yann Krupa, Laurent Vercouter
2010 Multi-Agent Logics, Languages, and Organisations Federated Workshops  
In the opposite, Contextual Integrity states that any information transmission can trigger a privacy violation depending on the context of the transmission.  ...  This framework is part of an ongoing work aiming at applying social control to agents that handle the information, so that malicious agents are excluded from the system.  ...  As the context tags (and target tags) are signed, it is possible to trust the agent that signed the given tag, to come to believe that this context tag corresponds to the context of the information.  ...

Folk-economic beliefs: An evolutionary cognitive model

Pascal Boyer, Michael Bang Petersen
2017 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
Here we propose that the cultural success of particular beliefs about the economy is predictable if we consider the influence of specialized, largely automatic inference systems that evolved as adaptations  ...  to ancestral human small-scale sociality.  ...  That is why we can better understand the diffusion of beliefs in social groups, if we follow closely the interaction between intuitions delivered by specialized inference systems, on the one hand, and  ...
