Robin Hanson is a Professor of Economics at the George Mason University in the US and a researcher at the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford University. He is an expert on prediction markets and the social implications of future technologies, e.g. artificial intelligence and nano-technology and their influence on the economy and society. Politically he supports futarchy -- a society where policy decisions are made based on open prediction markets.

Robin has a diverse background: he has a Bachelor's and Master's degree in physics but a PhD in social sciences. Robin has researched the artificial intelligence and Bayesian statistics at NASA and developed a prediction market predicting the political stability, economic growth and military activity of foreign countries for the US Department of Defense. Robin's ideas often cause controversial reactions and he wishes to find ways to more effectively decentralize the government's tasks.

Robin Hanson on majandusprofessor George Masoni Ülikoolis USAs ja uurija Oxfordi Ülikooli Inimtuleviku Instituudis. Ta on ekspert ennustusturgude alal ning tema eriliseks huviks on tulevikutehnoloogiad, näiteks tehisintellekt ja nanotehnoloogia ning nende mõju majandusele ja ühiskonnale üldisemalt. Oma poliitilistelt vaadetelt toetab ta "futurokraatiat" - ühiskonda, kus poliitilisi otsuseid tehakse avatud ennustusturgude abil.

Robin on väga mitmekülgse taustaga: bakalauruse- ja magistrikraad füüsikas, doktorikraad aga sotsiaalteadustes, ta on NASAs tegelenud tehisintellekti ja Bayesi statistika uurimisega ning välja arendanud USA kaitseministeeriumi jaoks ennustusturu, mis prognoosib riigi poliitilist stabiilsust, majanduskasvu ja sõjalist võimsust. Robini ideed tekitavad tihtipeale vastuolulisi reaktsioone ning ta sooviks on uurida, millise piirini on võimalik valitsuse ülesandeid detsentraliseerida.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
