Event description
Daniel Kahneman, Cass Sunstein and Olivier Sibony will join us for a livestreamed event, to talk about their new book, Noise.

About this event

Kahneman is the Nobel prize-winning author of Thinking, Fast and Slow. His work in the field of behavioural economics has revolutionised how we think about how we think, challenging our belief in human rationality and showing how our intuitions can mislead us.

Noise, a new collaboration between Kahneman, White House insider and co-author of Nudge, Sunstein, and Oxford professor of strategic thinking, Sibony, sees the authors again explore the influences behind our decision-making, and what leads us to make bad judgements in many fields - from law and medicine to forensic science and child protection.

Why is it that two doctors in the same city give different diagnoses to identical patients? How can one criminal be arrested for the same crime as another who is being let off? The book says, “Wherever there is judgment, there is noise — and more of it than you think.” These three influential and ground-breaking writers will join Zoe Williams to explore how we combat the background factors that impact our thinking.

Running time: 75 minutes
