Description

Psychologist Daniel Kahneman says there are invisible factors that distort our judgment. He calls these factors “noise.” The consequences can be found in everything from marriage proposals to medical diagnoses and prison sentences. This week on Hidden Brain, we consider how to identify noise in the world, and in our own lives.

What a pleasure it is to listen to Daniel Kahaneman. Shankar is clearly a fan and asks him great questions. Bring Kahanaman back on the show often.
