Business Network Topical Meeting Navigation


Annual Risk Meeting

Held at Morgan Stanley World Headquarters, 41st Floor, 1585 Broadway, New York, NY

Thursday, October 2, 2014

Yet there is suggestive evidence that attempting to optimize a system’s performance or to make it more efficient can make it more brittle, fragile, and less robust and resilient. This meeting will explore relationships between optimality/efficiency and robustness/resilience over a wide range of biological, technological, and organizational systems.
