Predicting Catastrophic Events: From Earthquakes to Financial Chaos

Hvordan kan vi forudsige katastrofale begivenheder som finanskrisen? Og hvad har det med jordskælv at gøre? Bliv klogere, når økonom og fysiker, professor Didier Sornette, verdensførende ekspert i at forudsige katastrofale begivenheder, gæster Koncertsalen. Aften blødes op med cocktails og musik fra Jakob Munck Mortensen, som vil spille "The Adventures of the Omnichord".

Science & Cocktails is proud to present an episode with economist and physicist, Professor Didier Sornette, world leading scientist in predicting catastrophic events such as earthquakes, economic crisis, and epileptic attacks. He leads the Financial Crisis Observatory and RichterX – an online platform for predicting earthquakes – and is the author of “Why Stock Markets Crash”. How can we predict catastrophic events like the financial crisis? And what does that have to do with earthquakes? Before just that Jakob Munck Mortensen will play “The Adventures of the Omnichord”.

Is it possible to predict the next financial crisis? Is it possible to predict where next earthquake will take place? What can earthquakes and epileptic seizures say about crashes in financial markets? And if you can predict such events, what does it mean for the future?

Catastrophic events are “ruptures” in the system or sudden transitions to a state of crisis. Examples are everywhere and include great earthquakes, abrupt changes in weather, financial crashes, avalanches, volcanic eruptions, lightning strikes, and even human birth.

In many cases, catastrophic events are typically thought of as being rare events, but recent research suggests otherwise. In fact, everything you think you know about economics and finance may be wrong. For one, financial economic systems are intrinsically unstable, with bubbles, crashes and crises being the norm rather than the exception in free markets. It is surprising that almost everyone is still surprised when a financial crisis occurs.

In fact, decades of empirical research and advanced theory demonstrate that financial markets typically exhibit breaking points. The good news is that such crashes in economic markets come with recognizable patterns that allow for predictive diagnostics. Are these the same patterns found in earthquake prediction, epileptic seizures or in the human body just before birth?

These pieces of knowledge provide a way to understand the 2008 great financial crisis, and many others, and informs on what to expect in future years to decades and how to prepare.

Event held in English with the generous support of the Novo Nordisk Foundation.

Didier Sornette

Didier Sornette is Chair Professor and co-Dean of the Institute of Risk Analysis, Prediction and Management (Risks-X) at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) Shenzhen, China since 2019. He is professor emeritus of ETH Zurich since 31st July 2022, where he was a founding member of the Risk Center at ETH Zurich.

Since 1st of August 2022, he has taken a leading role in the private sector, applying his skills to develop socially important business products associated to earthquake forecasts and financial crises, as well as in medical applications. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a member of the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences and of the Academia Europaea.

He uses rigorous data-driven mathematical statistical analyses combined with nonlinear multi-variable dynamical models with positive and negative feedbacks to study the predictability and control of crises and extreme events in complex systems, with applications to all domains of science and practice.

Jakob Munch Mortensen

Jakob Munck Mortensen plays Rock, Waltz, Latin, Foxtrot and Swing. On this evening he will play his album “The Adventures og The Omnichord”.
