Andrew Zolli, Curator and Executive Director of PopTech as well as the author of Resilience, recently gave an interesting presentation on why humans are notoriously incapable at predicting future events, the cognitive biases that prevent us from doing so, and the importance of creating resilient systems.
The presentation is worth watching purely for the great examples he gives of just how hard it is to anticipate how people and complex systems will behave.
