During his stay in Cologne, he will give a series of public lectures entitled "Predicting the Future: From Augurs to Algorithms" in which he will discuss how experts make predictions in light of a fundamentally uncertain future and how such predictions are used as strategic devices. The lectures will be held on June 5, 12, and 19, 2018, at the MPIfG. Each year the MPIfG invites a leading scholar from the political, economic, or social sciences to spend three to six months at the Institute.
