We are pleased to announce that the 4th workshop within PYTHIA project will be held on 3rd April in Warsaw, Poland.
The goal of this working session titled “Judgement: managing the cognitive factor to improve the accuracy of technology foresight” will be to explore the role of cognitive biases and their impact on technology forecasters.
The main question we will be looking for to answer is “How can we take into account the cognitive factor in order to improve the technology foresight?”
As usual, this working meeting will gather all consortium partners: Engineering Informatica S.p.A. (Italy), Zanasi & Partners (Italy), Expert System (France), Hawk Associates Ltd (United Kingdom), Military University of Technology (Poland,) Fondazione ICSA (Intelligence Culture And Strategic Analysis) (Italy), Romanian National Defense University, Carol I° (NDU), Bulgarian Defence Institute “Professor Tsvetan Lazarov” (BDI).
Furthermore, external experts from different countries & different organizations (private sector, armament universities) will join the workshop, provide their expertise and share their experience during the interactive session.
In the first place, the workshop will start with the global overview of the project by Engineering Ingegneria Informatica S.p.A; in the second place, Zanasi & Partners will introduce cognitive biases affecting human judgement, then Engineering Ingegneria Informatica S.p.A with Expert System will present the technology trends and big data analytics developed withing PYTHIA project.
