Kane Hall 130, UW Seattle

When making important decisions involving uncertainty in domains in which we are not familiar, we often have access to information about the relevant uncertainty that is provided by experts. This lecture explores what people understand about uncertainty in decision making, how effectively they incorporate it into the decision making process and implications for how best to communicate uncertain information to non-expert decision makers.

David Budescu is the Anne Anastasi Professor of Psychometrics and Quantitative Psychology in Fordham University's Department of Psychology.
Susan Joslyn
 is an associate professor in the University of Washington's Department of Psychology.

This popular series brings notable psychologists to the University of Washington to co-present with faculty from the UW Department of Psychology. Together they will reveal how the brain and an individual's expectations influence the decisions that we make in uncertain conditions. Learn more about the 2014 series.
