Author & Risk Analyst
DAY 1 - June 2nd
Successful professionals are not risk-avoidant,
they are great assessors of risk
and learn how to turn adversity into an advantage.
A Black Swan is an unpredictable event in human history
with global positive or negative consequences
(the rise of the internet, World War I).
Nassim Nicholas Taleb spent 21 years as a risk taker (quantitative trader) before becoming a researcher in philosophical, mathematical and (mostly) practical problems with probability.
Taleb is the author of a multivolume essay, the Incerto (The Black Swan, Fooled by Randomness, Antifragile, Skin in the Game and The Bed of Procrustes) covering broad facets of uncertainty.
His work has been published in 49 languages.
In addition to his trader life, Taleb has also written, as a backup of the Incerto, more than 70 technical and scholarly papers in mathematical statistics, genetics, quantitative finance, statistical physics, medicine, philosophy, ethics, economics, & international affairs, around the notion of risk and probability (grouped in the Technical Incerto).
Nassim Nicholas Taleb is currently a Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering (retired) and a scientific advisor for Universa Investments.
His current focus is on the properties of systems that can handle disorder (“antifragile”).
Nassim Nicholas Taleb has advised heads of state, top financial institutions, and various central banks on tail risks.
He has given training sessions and workshops to some of the largest companies in the world (Amazon, Microsoft, Google, IBM) as well as governmental entities (World Bank, the US Department of Defense).
