Featured Session:  The Predictioneer’s Game: Using the Logic of Brazen Self-Interest to See and Shape the Future

Featured Speaker:  Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, Silver Professor of Politics, New York University; Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University; Consultant to CIA

About the session:  Since the 1970s, Bruce Bueno de Mesquita has been making amazingly precise and accurate forecasts of future events in politics, government, and business. Working with the State Department, CIA, and the Defense Department Bruce predicts how the leaders involved in making decisions will act over time, based on their own self interest, their predilections, and given their relative influence on any particular issue. He uses complex computer algorithms, along with a deep understanding of the players in the geopolitical game, to predict outcomes. Bruce was recently profiled in a cover story in the New York Times Magazine. He is also the subject of a recent History Channel program entitled, The Next Nostradamus.
