Nassim Taleb Joins the NBForum Helsinki 2021 Lineup

Nassim Taleb, the author of Black Swan and Skin in the Game, will join the Nordic Business Forum 2021 event organized in Helsinki on 29-30 September. At the event, Taleb will share his insights on how to deal with uncertainty.

Dr. Nassim Nicholas Taleb spent 21 years as a risk taker (quantitative trader) before becoming a researcher in philosophical, mathematical, and (mostly) practical problems with probability.

Taleb is the author of a multivolume essay, the Incerto (The Black Swan, Fooled by Randomness, Antifragile, and Skin in the Game) covering broad facets of uncertainty. It has been published in 43 languages.

In addition to his trader life, Taleb has also written, as a backup of the Incerto, more than 50 scholarly papers in mathematical statistics, genetics, quantitative finance, statistical physics, philosophy, ethics, economics, & international affairs, around the notion of risk and probability (grouped in the Technical Incerto).

Taleb is currently a Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering (only a quarter-time position) [and, finance-related bio only: scientific advisor for Universa Investments]. His current focus is on the properties of systems that can handle disorder (“antifragile”).

We are thrilled to learn more in September! For other details on the Nordic Business Forum Helsinki 2021 event, check the event website.
