Hear Tracy Allison Altman [@UglyResearch (https://twitter.com/UglyResearch)] talk about a landmark behavioral economics paper, Tversky and Kahneman's Judgment under Uncertainty: Heuristics and Biases (https://people.hss.caltech.edu/~camerer/Ec101/JudgementUncertainty.pdf). Tracy will share how this paper has influenced her work, and what it tells us about bias in algorithms and AI. The authors' insights challenged conventional decision-making, and inspired new approaches to cognitive science, choice architecture, social policy, and software design.
