Episode #88 - Handling Uncertainty on a Grand Scale - an Interview with Cornell’s Dr. Joe Halpern

Decades ago, Cornell’s Dr. Joe Halpern wrote a book called “Reasoning with Uncertainty.” In this interview, we discuss alternatives approaches to handling large scale uncertainty – as might be applied to broad concerns such as environmental policy, or the management of hard-to-predict emerging technologies.
