Risk: Towards More Resilient Systems and Societies

Risk: Towards More Resilient Systems and Societies

Thursday, May 22, 2014

New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St, 40th Fl

 

Can we avoid another Manhattan blackout or minimize its impact? Can we sidestep natural catastrophes like Hurricane Sandy? How do we manage risk and complex behavioral patterns that result from a growing interconnectedness of systems? This seminar outlines the paradigm shift towards resilience, using models, techniques, and concepts that illustrate the emergent thinking: Unthinkable vs. Predictable; Black Swans vs. Dragon Kings.
