      Friston, Karl; Samothrakis, Spyridon; Montague, P. Read (Springer, 2012-08-03)
      This paper describes a variational free-energy formulation of (partially observable) Markov decision problems in decision making under uncertainty. We show that optimal control can be cast as active inference. In active ...
