Bacteria solve the problem of crowding by moving slowly

Nature Physics, Published online: 23 November 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-01070-6

Bacteria are able to move as vast, dense collectives. Here the authors show that slow movement is key to this collective behaviour because faster bacteria cause topological defects to collide together and trap cells in place.

Bayesianism and self-doubt

2020年11月20日 星期五 上午8:00|Latest Results for Synthese

Abstract

How should we respond to evidence when our evidence indicates that we are rationally impaired? I will defend a novel answer based on the analogy between self-doubt and memory loss. To believe that one is now impaired and previously was not is to believe that one’s epistemic position has deteriorated. Memory loss is also a form of epistemic deterioration. I argue that agents who suffer from epistemic deterioration should return to the priors they had at an earlier time. I develop this argument regarding memory loss then extend it to cases of self-doubt.
