Michael Lewis talked about his book Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds, in which he looks at the work of Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky that focused on the decision making process of humans. Their work demonstrated errors by the human mind when confronted with making decisions in the midst of uncertainty and led to the creation of the field of behavioral economics and a shift toward the use of algorithms over the human mind. close
