In the second part of their discussion, Pedro Ferreira and Jerome Martin consider ways to build the naturalness of an inflationary model into our expectations for observing it.

They debate the feasibility of measuring the degree to which an inflationary model is inspired by considerations from other parts of physics, and describe the applicability of Bayesian methods when we have background knowledge. This discussion was conducted at the University of Oxford on March 15, 2017.
