MS Spring 2022

Ethics and Decision Making. In an average day we take hundreds of decisions. According to Daniel Kahneman, the mind deals with decisions by using two different systems - System 1 that is fast and is based on your experience, for example when picking a soft drink, System 1 knows your preference and reaches for your favorite one. However , speed comes with a price, System 1 is not good at detailed analysis and can often by influenced by biases. System 2 is more deliberate, it is slower, takes in data, analyzes and then reaches a decision. In this course we will learn techniques that will help us deal with more complex decisions - situations where System 2 is going to be used. We will look at types of decisions where we know the decision parameters and cases when there is uncertainty.
