We welcome additional corporate and individual investors and are currently seeking philanthropic support to enable us to bring in more researchers, engage in more projects and build our network of partners. To learn more about plans for the UCL Centre for the Study of Decision-Making Uncertainty, to discuss how it could be of most benefit to your business, or to explore opportunities to support UCL, please contact: Christine Simms, Executive Head of Major Gifts.
The Centre’s approach starts from a series of ideas we have been developing around complexity science and economic relationships; the cognitive and emotional challenges faced when decisions must be made under radical uncertainty; the importance of what we term conviction narratives; the role of emotions and states of mind in “good” decision-making; phantastic objects and divided states; ways to enhance macroeconomic and finance theories through access to new types of data; and new ways to approach and use artificial Intelligence.
The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.
