Most of my lectures (in Israel and worldwide) address the wide variety of Decision-Making processes and insights on Game Theory, probabilities, statistics, neuroscience, and psychology.
When I give these lectures, I wish to foster a deeper understanding of decision-making processes, acquiring profounder analytical skills, and improving strategic thinking.
Also, I offer tools that help people avoid common mistakes that follow from flawed mental models, while correcting mental weaknesses and erroneous thinking.
My most popular lectures include:
An introduction to strategic thinking and interactive decision-making:
bargaining games and the art of negotiations, the multidimensional Prisoner's Dilemma and The Tragedy of the Commons, the Ultimatum and Dictator games and Games of Trust, the Blackmailer's Paradox, the Chinese Vase game and the advantages of collaboration, A Keynesian Beauty Contest, Tulip mania and the Theory of Auctions…
I Think, Therefore I Err
A discussion about the Psychology of Decision-Making, in which I speak about cognitive biases and a variety of typical errors made in a wide range of fields by decision makers such as doctors, military leaders, economists, voters, and judges.
Games Theory in Business
This talk is a personal interpretation of the PARTS model, founded by professors Barry Nalebuff (of Harvard) and Adam Brandenburger (of Yale). PARTS uses the Game Theory insights as a base and constructs upon it five additional elements as extra dimensions. Those five elements are: Players, Added Value, Rules, Tactics and Scope. The PARTS model is able to consider a more realistic set of parameters and outcomes than Game Theory.
A Mathematician Reading the Newspaper
