Abstract

Inspired by simple notions from geometric probability and probabilistic geometry, I will discuss a few questions in dynamics,  perception, and action that include the physics of a coin toss,  machine classification algorithms for faces and places, and optimal  throwing and navigation strategies in uncertain environments. Time  permitting I will also raise some psychophysical issues associated with mathematical intuition and learning particularly in the context of geometry and probability.
