Event description

Description

We cordially invite you to a presentation by Albert-László Barabási titled The Formula: Quantifying Outcomes in Individual Careers, from Science to Art, hosted by Dr. György Buzsáki, Professor of Neuroscience at the New York University School of Medicine.

Common wisdom goes something like this: Performance drives success, hence work hard and success will follow. But as we’ve all witnessed, that’s not always the case. Here I aim to quantify success in science and arts by realizing that while your performance is about you, your success is about “us”—meaning that success is a collective and measurable quantity that captures how your peers observe and recognize your performance. This approach allows us to explore, using the tools of science, the emergence of impact, and quantify our ability to measure and predict success. I will discuss when will a scientist make her highest impact discovery, how to assign credit to collaborative work, and the role of professional and institutional networks in the emergence of impact and recognition in both science and art.

Join us Thursday Dec 13th, 2018 at 4:00 pm for the talk, followed by reception and book signing.
