  1. Professor Olivier Sibony on Mistakes — The Human Risk Podcast

    Why do even the smartest and most savvy business people make mistakes? It’s not because they’re stupid. Instead, it’s because of the way our brains work. That’s what Professor Olivier Sibony, my guest on this episode, explores in his latest book “You’re About To Make A Terrible Mistake”.

    In that book, he highlights how cognitive biases that underpin our thinking, can lead us to make terrible mistakes. Using fascinating case studies, he explores how we can fall into what he calls decision-making traps and how we can mitigate those. Not by re-programming ourselves, but rather by using collective thinking.

    In our discussion, we explore the ideas in his book, and we look ahead to his next book “Noise” which he’s writing with Daniel Kahneman and Cass Sunstein.

  2. Building Better Worlds (Cennydd Bowles, New Adventures conference, 23rd January 2020)

    Presented by Cennydd Bowles at New Adventures, 23rd January 2020, Nottingham, UK.

    We can’t go on like this. In the face of climate crisis, deepening inequality, and widespread automation, our infrastructures and imaginations aren’t ready for the changes ahead. But this is no time for mourning. Designers can rebuild our outdated institutions and prototype better futures to come. Along the way, we’ll reimagine design itself. User-centred methods have blinded us to social and ecological harms; we now need speculative and critical approaches to the world’s biggest challenges. Design in a world on the brink means embracing our moral duties, becoming planetary custodians, and giving the many, not just the few, a stake in the future. Better worlds are possible, if we wish them.
