It’s a risky life! A series of introductory videos on risk and its impact on modern life

Welcome to It’s a risky life!, a project sponsored by the AXA Research Fund, produced by the ICMAT Communication Unit and the AXA-ICMAT Chair and directed by Filmociencia.

It’s a risky life! is a series of short videos which illustrate and divulgate in a fun, yet rigorous, manner key mathematical concepts around risk (risk, insurance, making decisions, uncertainty,…) relevant for everyday activities. This is motivated by the lack of understanding by large audiences of such basic concepts and will focus on their relevance in everyday lives and the need for strategies to deal with them efficiently. The lead presenter of the series is David Rios, AXA-Chair at the ICMAT.

We want you to participate! Each video includes a challenge. Participate by submitting your responses to win a social programmable robot.
