Poptech 2005 12

Session 12

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Scandal of Prediction
Value of library is the books we haven't read
We focus on what we know.  The narrative falacy - we ascribe a cause to random events
Epistemic error - over confidence in your ability to know what you know
Most pojects late and over budget.

THe limits of our ability to predict the future.
