Title: Entropy Maximisation on Predicate Languages

Abstract. The Maximum Entropy Principle is straight-forward and well-understood on finite domains due to the seminal work of Alena Vencovská & Jeff Paris. In this talk, I consider applications of the Maximum Entropy Principle to infinite predicate languages. After introducing two conceptually different explications, I’ll talk about their conjectured equivalence and provide some evidence for this conjecture. Finally, I’ll show that one of these explications agrees with Jeffrey updating.
