Webinar: Cognitive Biases And Decision-Making In The COVID-19 Crisis
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic, the reaction of populations and the response of governments in various countries raise many questions.
Cognitive science can help us understand the biases that affect these reactions, and the apparent irrationality of some of them. In this interactive session, Professor Olivier Sibony will use examples drawn from the response to the pandemic in various countries to illustrate several cognitive biases.
The discussion will highlight the dangers that the same cognitive biases present for executives in their strategic decisions, and the lessons they can draw to avoid them.
Speaker: Olivier Sibony, Associate Professor HEC Paris
