Book Club: Noise by Daniel Kahneman et al
Mar 15 - Virtual Event

Join fellow alumni from the MIT Club of Boston for a virtual discussion of the book Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgment - Daniel Kahneman, Olivier Sibony, Cass Sunstein.

magine that two doctors in the same city give different diagnoses to identical patients or that two judges in the same courthouse give markedly different sentences to people who have committed the same crime. Now imagine that the same doctor or the same judge makes different decisions depending on whether it is morning or afternoon, or Monday rather than Wednesday. These are examples of noise: variability in judgments that should be identical.

In Noise, Daniel Kahneman, Olivier Sibony, and Cass R. Sunstein show the detrimental effects of noise in many fields, including medicine, law, economic forecasting, forensic science, bail, child protection, strategy, performance reviews, and personnel selection. Wherever there is judgment, there is noise. Yet, most of the time, individuals and organizations alike are unaware of it. They neglect noise. With a few simple remedies, people can reduce both noise and bias, and so make far better decisions.

**Please read this book in advance of the discussion**
