99.99% of the decisions we make are made without the use of formal mathematics, yet math plays an important part in shaping our intuition. Can we improve our intuition? Can we identify and overcome the difficulties we humans have in dealing with probabilities? Join Peter Winkler, MoMath’s 2019-2020 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics, for a series of exclusive dinner events during which probability and decision theory will be explored in the context of puzzles — realistic or contrived —whose answers may surprise us. The objective? Have fun while discovering some new ways to deal with our uncertain world. Attend individual events (each held at a local fine dining establishment) or sign up for all four, but don’t delay — space is extremely limited for these exclusive events.
