Stanford Seminar — Nassim Taleb

Nassim Taleb kicks off the spring quarter entrepreneurial thought leaders seminar at Stanford with this April April 10, 2013 lecture that corresponds to Book 4 of Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder (innovation as optionality).

Taleb is the author of Fooled by Randomness, The Black Swan, and, most recently, Antifragile. His works focuses on decision making under uncertainty, as well as technical and philosophical problems with probability and metaprobability, in other words “what to do in a world we don’t understand”
