A Very Unlikely Event
How likely is it that the Royal Statistical Society would be running an event based on the ideas of a world famous Fantasy author?
How likely is it that a Fantasy author would come up with an idea so important that it would inspire the Royal Statistical Society`s Quality Improvement Section Committee to run this event?
How likely is it that the author, Jasper Fforde`s, idea had not previously been thought up by the world`s statistical community, but nevertheless has the potential to transform both statistical thinking and business practice?
The idea is Expectation Influenced Probability. Is this a Fantasy? Jasper Fforde`s fans know very well that in his worlds almost anything is possible. But this is the real world, isn’t it? Can Expectation Influenced Probability really help provide explanation for events as diverse as the failures of Risk Analysis, and `Black Swan` events such as the Financial Crisis?.. & could it help stop them?
Speakers and Titles:
Expectation Influenced Probability & How I Discovered It
Planning for the Unexpected: Expectation Influenced Probability and the Prediction of Black Swans
Let`s Play a Game…
There will also be a panel discussion including sector experts.
