Andy was one of the speakers at this year’s BoS Conference USA 2019 and talked about why humans were awesome at risk management and why humans were awful at risk management. It is good. Very good. At the speaker dinner, we got into a conversation about how people can take the same data to come to derive completely different meanings. He’d been thinking about this and explained how you can take the Harry Potter stories and come to some very disturbing conclusions. In this discussion with Andy, he explains, using both Harry Potter and the Star Wars trilogy as examples. Very entertaining and thought-provoking… Harry Potter fans might not like it.
