Active Inference Lab

Active Inference Lab (ActInfLab) is a non-profit organization that is a participatory open-science laboratory curating and developing applications related to the Active Inference framework.


The goal of ActInfLab is to produce cutting-edge research and enable real-world applications of Active Inference.


ActInfLab also seeks to scaffold the Active Inference community: increasing the competency of participants & raising broader awareness of these topics.


ActInfLab consists of multiple organizational units (Education, Communication, Tools), each with specific affordances and functions.

Participate in ActInfLab in 2022!


We seek participation from:

  • All who are curious about Active Inference and how they might increase their competency in this area.

  • Individuals who seek to assist projects of various kinds through role-based participation, thus learning Active Inference by doing.

  • Researchers who seek collaborations that apply Active Inference to their field or system of interest.

  • Those who have mastered another domain (such as ontology, linguistics, machine learning, agent-based approaches, robotics, communications).

  • Anyone looking to adapt and innovate through transdisciplinary research, generation of start ups, applications to industry, and more.

To reduce your uncertainty about ActInfLab affordances for participation, please get in touch with us through email: ActiveInference@gmail.com before or after completing our Participation form.

Here is the first session of the Applied Active Inference symposium that our Lab hosted on June 21st 2021, with Professor Karl Friston.
