The Polytechnic Institute of NYU held its first "Innovation and Technology Forum" of the year on Monday. Daniel Kahneman, a retired Princeton University professor and winner of the 2002 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, was the keynote speaker.
In 2009, NYU-Poly established the forum, which is part of a required freshman course, promotes the university's philosophy of invention, innovation and entrepreneurship, also known as i2e.
"Intuition is marvelous as well as flawed," Kahneman said. "Some of the greatest things that happen to us happen to us because we have intuition."
