Today’s humanitarian and economic disaster has created an unimaginable shock. Our future is nothing we imagined a few months ago. What are we to do? How can they prepare for a future of increasingly rapid changes and disruptions?
At MIT, we teach our students to be antifragile—to not only survive in such a world, but also thrive in it. We teach ways we can get stronger in the face of adversity, incomplete information, time urgency, and dramatic outcomes. Our students figure out how to turn a negative into a positive.
Professor Aulet focuses on very practical lessons from world experts, building off each other in a methodical fashion, and will discuss ways that will make us more antifragile.
