2012 Shann Memorial Lecture : The Art of Strategy: Game Theory in Movies, Sports, and Literature Other events...
Game theory means rigorous strategic thinking. It's the art of anticipating your opponent's next moves, knowing full well that your rival is trying to do the same thing as you. In the 2012 Shann Memorial Lecture, Professor Dixit will combine common sense with counterintuitive theory to illustrate a new way of seeing the world. He will show how nearly every business and personal interaction - from pop culture, TV, movies, sports, politics, and history - has a game theory component.
