CCSE SEMINAR: 10/1 - Peter Atwater - The Role of Over and Under Confidence in Financial Decision Making

Babbio 319

Center for Complex Systems and Enterprises
Distinguished Lecture Series

The Role of Over and Under Confidence in Financial Decision Making

Peter Atwater

Financial Insyghts, LLC

ABSTRACT:  Many classic economic theories believe that we are self-interested actors who make rational judgments necessary to achieving our subjectively defined ends. What these theories disregard is how changes in our level of confidence dramatically alter our preferences, decisions and actions.  What we perceive to be rational is driven by how we feel.

In his presentation, Peter Atwater will introduce the concept of confidence-driven decision-making and how over and under confidence can materially alter the decisions of individual and institutional investors, market makers as well those regulating the markets.

Using examples out of current headlines Atwater will challenge our understanding of what confidence truly is and how it impacts the financial world around us. 

BIO:  Called “one of the smartest guys you never heard of on anything financial” by Herb Greenberg of CNBC, PETER ATWATER writes and speaks extensively about how changes in confidence affect our preferences, decisions and actions. He is the author of the book Moods and Markets (FT Press, 2012) which details how investors can improve returns by using non-market indicators of confidence. Atwater is a regular contributor to Minyanville.com and has written articles for the World Policy Institute. His research on confidence has been mentioned in The Financial Times, Reuters and Time Magazine. Atwater has also been a commentator on television, appearing on CNBC and Fox Business News.

Peter is an adjunct professor at the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics at The University of Delaware and is a member of the New America Foundation World Economic Roundtable. He spoke at TEDx Wilmington in August 2013 and TEDx College of William and Mary in April 2014.

In 2008, Atwater founded Financial Insyghts to provide research on the financial services industry to money managers and hedge funds. Today, his firm advises institutional investors, business leaders and public policymakers on the role of confidence in human decision making.

Prior to founding Financial Insyghts, Atwater was a financial services executive. A lifelong creative thinker, he was pioneer in securitization. He built and then ran JPMorgan’s asset-backed securities business. Over his career, he served as Treasurer of First USA and Bank One, CEO of Bank One Private Client Services and CFO of Juniper Financial (now BarclayCard USA).

Deans’ Seminar Series: Peter Shainin, The Shainin Group - Engineering Problem Solving Beyond Math - Almost

Stevens Institute of Technology, Babbio 122

Abstract: Engineers are taught to build mathematical models of the problems they face and then solve the math. It is a strategy that works well as the primary basis for design, but not in product development or manufacturing. This talk will examine how creative thinking and statistics can play a central role in solving problems on the production end of the equation.

Biography: Peter Shainin ‘66 is Chairman of the Shainin Group, a group of engineering consulting companies in the United States, Europe and China. The group offers services in new product development, product and process reliability, engineering problem solving and training for client’s engineering staffs in these areas. Most of the group’s reliability and problem solving technologies were developed internally and are famous throughout the manufacturing world for their effectiveness. The group’s client list consists of many of the world’s most sophisticated manufacturing companies.

Mr. Shainin graduated from Stevens in 1966 with the degree of Mechanical Engineer. He started his career at Pratt & Whitney working on development of the F-100 engine fuel systems. He has held positions in product design, product development, architecture and heavy construction - becoming a registered professional engineer (1970). In 1984 he went to work for his father’s one-man consulting business and eventually grew the Shainin Group to its current worldwide reach.

Attendance for this event is open to all Stevens faculty, students, staff and invited guests. Immediately following the lecture, a reception will take place in the Babbio Atrium.

Humanities Forum: Jason Vredenburg, “Calling All Cars: The Automobile and the Transformation of Urban Space in Hard-Boiled Detective Novels”

Morton 324

Humanities Forum: Jason Vredenburg (Teaching Assistant Professor)
“Calling All Cars: The Automobile and the Transformation of Urban Space in Hard-Boiled Detective Novels”

Abstract
While early twentieth century urban space was organized around the railway and the telegraph, the automobile disrupts that social order by making the automotive subject mobile in a way that the surveillance gaze was not—at least until the proliferation of the two-way radio, which made it simple and efficient to coordinate the efforts of police automobiles throughout urban space, thus mobilizing the gaze. Hardboiled detective fiction emerges in this moment of instability, and reacts specifically against classical detective fiction in the vein of Sherlock Holmes, whose methods of detection were consistent with a social order organized around the railroad. As a body of work uniquely attuned to this cultural shift, hardboiled detective fiction's precarious, unstable urban space helps to reveal and explain the evolving relationship between police and public during a period in which new transportation and communication technologies were rapidly transforming local police power and practices. 

Biography
Jason Vredenburg is a Teaching Assistant Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology, where he teaches in the Freshman Experience program in the College of Arts and Letters. He holds a Ph.D. In English from the University of Illinois, where he specialized in twentieth-century American Literature and cinema studies. He has published articles in Journal of American Studies and in Pedagogy. His current project examines the intersection of the automobile and communications technology in twentieth-century American literature and film.

Humanities Forum: Tony Pennino, “Science Fiction as Inspiration for Science: The Case of Edward Bellamy”

Morton 324

Humanities Forum: Tony Pennino (Assistant Professor, Literature)
“Science Fiction as Inspiration for Science: The Case of Edward Bellamy”
 

ABSTRACT
In 2013, the Center for Science and Imagination at Arizona State University announced the launch of the Hieroglyph Project, founded with Neal Stephenson, in “an effort to get science fiction writers talking with scientists and engineers about the future”. For this paper, Professor Pennino will discuss the importance of science-fiction, not strictly within the confines of the discipline of literature, but rather at the intersection of individual inspiration (both artistic and scientific) and societal and technological progress. He will specifically examine Edward Bellamy’s novel Looking Backward (1887) and how it might serve as a model text for the center’s mission. In particular, this novel provides an excellent illustration as to the role humanities in general can play in scientific inspiration.

BIOGRAPHY
Anthony P. Pennino is an assistant professor of literature and theater at Stevens Institute of Technology where he has taught since 2007. He holds an M.F.A. from Columbia University and a Ph.D. from the University of London. He was a Fulbright Scholar for which he served as a senior lecturer at Kadir Has University in Istanbul, Turkey. He was the recipient of a 2005 Fellowship from the New Jersey Council of the Arts. His current research centers on the evolution of William Shakespeare’s work in late twentieth-century theatre. Earlier this year, his paper on Shakespeare and the Chartist Movement was published by Monograf.

Gender & Cultural Studies Event: Madhusree Mukerjee, "Sexual Violence and Development"

Kidde 228, Stevens Institute of Technology

Wednesday, October 15, 3-4 p.m., Kidde Auditorium (room 228)
Madhusree Mukerjee (Science Journalist), "Sexual Violence and Development" 

In this lecture, author Madhusree Mukerjee will discuss the recent rise of rapes and other assaults on women in India, arguing that the rise is caused in part by an Indian patriarchal tradition that feels threatened by the liberation of women by modernity and development. Her ethnographical research of the Santal tribe in eastern India exposes the extent to which the increase in sexual violence derives from modernity and globalization in its marginalized communities. In particular, formerly pristine areas that are opened up for mining experience an influx of unattached males (managers, overseers, truck drivers, and others) who routinely rape indigenous women. Mining also devastates the landscape, leading to a loss of agricultural livelihoods that force women into brothels in the mining townships or into trafficking networks that transport them to distant cities where they are also subject to sexual and other forms of abuse. Such introduction of a “rape culture” into vulnerable indigenous societies, which are traditionally far more egalitarian in gender relations than is mainstream Indian culture, has also led to an increase in sexual attacks by indigenous males. For the most part, rather than liberating the poorest and most vulnerable women, development is intensifying their violent subjugation.

BIOGRAPHY
Madhusree Mukerjee received a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Chicago. She writes about environment, indigenous issues, development, colonialism, and science. She is the author of two books, Churchill’s Secret War: The British Empire and the Ravaging of India During World War II (Basic Books, 2010) and The Land of Naked People: Encounters with Stone Age Islanders (Houghton Mifflin, 2003).

This talk is co-sponsored by the Gender and Cultural Studies Program. 

4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Provost's Lecture Series on Women in Leadership

Stevens Institute of Technology, Babbio 122

The Provost’s Lecture Series on Women in Leadership is designed to showcase the achievements of prominent and successful women and to motivate the next generation of leaders. It provides an opportunity for women to share their individual experiences and to analyze the unique strengths, challenges and opportunities they face. The women selected for this series are true visionaries from which we can all learn.

This fall, Linda Sanford, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Transformation at IBM, will join the list of Stevens' distinguished speakers presenting her talk The Transformative Leader: Strategies for Leading in Times of Change.

In the past several years advances in technology and a sustained period of sluggish economic growth have disrupted industry landscapes permanently. And yet this period of discontinuity is also a period of opportunity – for exceptional leaders. New leaders are emerging who have the ability to guide their organizations through a challenging period and arrive stronger on the other side. 

What characteristics do these leaders share? How are they applying technology creatively to make smarter decisions? How are they inspiring their people to accomplish game-changing innovation in a time of uncertainty?  

Linda Sanford – who rose through the engineering ranks to become a senior leader at IBM – will reflect on her own experience leading major change efforts inside her organization and working with change leaders at organizations around the world.

Attendance for this event is open to all Stevens faculty, students, staff and invited guests.

Humanities Forum: William Rouse, “How Greater New York City Transformed America”

Morton 324

Humanities Forum: William Rouse
“How Greater New York City Transformed America”

ABSTRACT
Silicon Valley in California and Route 128 in Massachusetts are often noted as two of the most important innovation ecosystems in the U.S. Silicon Valley emerged in the late 1930s under the tutelage of Frederick Terman, Dean of Engineering at Stanford University. Route 128 emerged as the Massachusetts Miracle in the early 1950s following World War II, with MIT playing a key role. In contrast, the innovation ecosystem of greater New York City began around 1800 and continues today. This presentation highlights 36 innovators in ships and railroads; clothes and personal care; pharmaceuticals; buildings and builders; oil and refining; electricity, computers and communications; finance and banking; academics and activists, and aviation. These people and the enterprises with which they were associated fostered the innovations that spawned the aerospace, computer, electronics, and energy industries that enabled Silicon Valley and Route 128. Along the way, greater New York City morphed repeatedly. This story of repeated transformation is outlined in parallel with highlighting some rather amazing people.

Abstract: Technology has become the center of our daily lives and this digital transformation continues to disrupt business models across industries. Armed with information, customers have higher expectations and freedom to choose alternative products and services. Much of this digital transformation is fueled by Verizon’s Fiber Optic and Wireless broadband services, Global IP networks and Cloud Computing platforms. How do businesses win customers in this new world of digital competition? How do we digitally empower employees to meet and exceed customer expectations? What should the next generation of technologists and engineers prepare for? Roger Gurnani, EVP & CIO at Verizon will share his thoughts on these topics.

CAL Lecture: Mark Schubin '71, "The Fandom of the Opera: How the Audience for a Centuries-Old Art Form Helped Create Modern Media Technology"

Kidde 350, Stevens Institute of Technology

ABSTRACT
Believe it or not, electronic home entertainment was invented for opera audiences. So were consumer headphones, movies, newscasts, and pay-cable. The first sportscasts were in opera houses. The first wireless broadcast? The first commercial digital recording? The first live subtitles? All opera.

The idea of transmitting opera motion pictures and sounds live to theaters worldwide appeared in print in 1877, to homes in 1882. Without opera, there might not be communications satellites. And, according to pioneering radiologist Percy Brown, “No opera, no X-rays!”

The first opera recordings were made 17 years before Edison’s first phonograph, and 76 years before that an automaton played opera music for Marie Antoinette. In the 21st century, labs around the world are working on ultra-high-speed communications systems for opera and have discussed neutrino communications and quantum entanglement. 

Galileo, Kepler, Lavoisier, Matisse – all had opera-technology connections. Stereo sound? The laryngoscope? Broadcast rights? All for opera. Really. Come and be amazed.

BIOGRAPHY
Multiple-Emmy-award-winning Mark Schubin ‘71 has been working professionally in media technology since 1967 and writing about its history since 1972. He has shot for the Rolling Stones, lit Philadelphia's Academy of Music, mixed Stevie Wonder, hooked up the TV in Eric Clapton's bedroom, and performed forensic analysis for the Woody Allen/Mia Farrow child-custody battle. 

Visiting all seven continents, Schubin has also sung at most of the great opera houses of the world, appeared inside the penguin enclosure of the Central Park Zoo, and piloted a blimp from Coney Island to the Statue of Liberty.

Digital Identity Protection - Concepts and Issues
Prof. Elisa Bertino (Purdue University)

Abstract:https://www.cs.purdue.edu/people/images/faculty/bertino.jpg

Digital identity management (DIM) has emerged as a critical foundation for supporting successful interaction in today's globally interconnected society. It is crucial not only for the conduct of business and government but also for a large and growing body of electronic or online social interactions. Digital identity management is usually coupled with the notion of federation. The goal of federations is to provide users with protected environments to federate identities by the proper management of identity attributes.  Federations provide a controlled method by which federation members can provide more integrated and complete services to a qualified group of individuals within certain sets of business transactions. By controlling the scope of access to participating sites, and by enabling secure, cross-domain transmission of user's personal information, federations can make the perpetration of identity frauds more difficult, as well as reduce their frequency, and their potential impact. In this talk we will first discuss basic digital identity concepts and requirements towards DIM solutions and we will overview relevant initiatives currently undergoing in academia and industry. We will then focus on the problem of identity theft and discuss an initial solution to the problem of establishing and protecting digital identity.
