Uncertainty and Decision-making: Philosophical instruments at the service of Engineering
Settembre 28 @ 12:30 - 13:30
Giovedì 28 settembre dalle ore 12.30 alle ore 13.30 presso l’Aula Fassò (Edificio 4A – p.za Leonardo da Vinci, 32 – Milano) si terrà un seminario dal titolo: “Uncertainty and Decision-making: Philosophical instruments at the service of Engineering“, tenuto da Malvina Ongaro (Politecnico di Milano – DICA).
Sarà anche possibile seguire l’evento online da WebEx.
Uncertainty is a central concept in everyday life and in most academic disciplines. In Engineering, virtually any modelling or planning has to face uncertainty of different types and varying degrees of severity. How do we make choices under all this uncertainty, and how should we make them? Analyses coming from theoretical research on the concept of uncertainty and on different approaches in decision-making may provide valuable tools for applied work in many areas of Engineering.
