According to a Technology News Daily article, The Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics is participating in a project called Bayesian Approach to Cognitive Systems (BACS). The researchers hope to learn whether Baysian networks can be used to help robots manage complex tasks in real-world environments. In the real world, humans, often have to make decisions using incomplete information. BACS will try to equip robots to deal with the same sort of situations in an intelligent way.
