What will we do?

Interactive talk on what probabilities are, why they matter and how you can apply them in your daily life to improve your thinking and make better decisions. This time we will focus on application to EA (Effective Altruism), in particular utility functions, intuitions for small and large probabilities (numbers) etc.

No mathematical background is required. The goal is to make the topic very intuitive and simple.

This is a joint event with EA Freiburg.

There will be snacks and drinks.


You are worried you have nothing to contribute? No worries! Everyone is welcome!

The talk will be in English, but questions and feedback can be given in German as well.

The talk will be until 06:30 pm. Afterwards there is an open discussion and socializing.

You can come even if you missed the first parts of this series of talks! There will be a brief recap.
