The financial crisis of 2008 is just one example of the fragility and systemic risks present in complex interconnected systems. Learn about the field of research that seeks to understand and mitigate systemic risk in this keynote with Dr. Munther Dahleh.
Professor Dahleh shares about his work in identifying and analyzing a variety of systems, how that work enables the ability to monitor and predict a cascade of ideas or failure in those systems, and how to measure that.
