Society for Judgment and Decision Making president Dan Ariely gave a TED talk on decision making, which they recently posted on their site. The decision making society president gives a talk on decision making: What could be more relevant for Decision Science News, which, after all is a website about decision research in Marketing, Psychology, Economics, Medicine, Law, Management, Public Policy, Statistics, Computer Science & Interaction Design.

Note the bit on organ donation at the five minute mark, it’s another favorite topic here at DSN.

If you are not familiar with the TED site, it’s a great source of mind-expanding lectures. Attending the TED conference costs a small fortune, but fortunately the content on their website is free. (You can even download copies to your own computer.)

    I have already seen the talk and I loved it. What I didn’t love was the Google Ad by Scientology that went along with this post.

    I think you should be able to exclude Google Ads from certain organisations.

    This is, if it bothers you as much as it did me.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Arjan!

    It seems like those ads are the problem du jour on the Internets:


    I imagine that soon someone will find and announce an effective filtering mechanism.

    Hmmm. I see. Annoying bunch of guys. And that goes for Google as well.

    Thanks for your explanation.
