Macmillan Symposium: 'Prediction: The Next Big Thing'

Apr 28, 2014
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Davis Center 400/401 (Grand Maple Ballroom)

They've peered into the entrails of animals, gone to the mountaintop oracle, planted with the Farmers Almanac, or bet with Nate Silver on basketball's March madness. And for just as long people have been disappointed when the predictions failed.

Can new advances in science succeed in making predictions, well, more predictive?
