4:30PM - 5:30PM

Location: UCS 55 Whitney Ave, 3rd floor

Jane Street Presents: A Quantitative Approach to Game Shows Jane Street is a quantitative trading firm, and the fundamental problem we work on every day is how to uncover mathematical and statistical relationships between tradable assets. That's obviously a very general goal, and there are an enormous number of interesting problems we get to think about in order to try to achieve that goal. So what does this have to do with game shows? I've found that thinking critically about game shows feels a lot like thinking critically about our problems at Jane Street. So, I'll be talking about interesting problems that arise during game shows, and how the skills necessary to be a successful game show contestant are relevant to working at Jane Street. I will touch upon topics in probability, statistics, game theory, and behavioral economics. I'll also run a game show of my own, with contestants from the audience. There will be prizes!
