Wisdom of the Crowd: Marcus du Sautoy at the Royal Society

Join us for our final project event!

The Wisdom of the Crowd – Marcus Du Sautoy at the Royal Society on November 29th at 6 PM

Where: At The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG

Details: Join Professor Marcus du Sautoy OBE FRS for a night of interactive experiments exploring the power of crowds in answering certain numerical questions.

From guessing the weight of a cow or the number of sweets in a jar, there is evidence that the average of a crowd’s guesses can deliver surprisingly accurate results.

Professor du Sautoy will carry out a number of live interactive quizzes and experiments to test these ideas and look at how these principals can be harnessed for citizen science projects.

This event will be hosted in partnership with the University of Oxford as part of the AHRC’s Constructing Scientific Communities project. Visit conscicom.org to discover more.
