A subjective tour through foundations and modern trends

Sonia Petrone, Universita Bocconi (Italy)

This lecture will be a tutorial-tour starting from a brief reminder of the origin of subjective probability and risk, focusing on notions of exchangeability and touching a (personal choice of) problems and current trends. A general question underlies the tour: In the “data science era”, do we still care about subjective foundations, or about foundations at all? I am sure we do, and the talk aims at discussing some reasons and implications.
