David Spiegelhalter is the Winton Professor for the Public Understanding of Risk at Cambridge. He's also one of the curators of our latest exhibition RISK LAB, exploring the maths and psychology of probability, chance, and risk.

As part of the SFI Speaker Series, David takes us behind the scenes for a look at RISK LAB - the themes it explores, the questions it asks, and the science it's based on. In the talk David discusses about his work on the public perception of risk, explaining why the mathematical likelihood of something happening doesn't necessarily align with the decisions we make about it.

Why do some people take risks, while others play it safe? How are people triggered into betting against the odds and why does the house always win? All these questions and more will be answered.
