In Game Changer, the podcast by TWS Partners, we want to share our enthusiasm and passion for game theory and its applications.
We invite guests from business and academia to discuss how they use the power of game theory in their profession to make a difference – and to learn some fun anecdotes, useful facts and valuable insights along the way. Join us on this journey, and find out that game theory is much more than a topic for ivory tower discussions.
Episode 3: Economists to the rescue – how game theory helped to fight a deadly disease
We discuss with TWS Partners’ Managing Partner Sebastian Moritz how applying knowledge from game theory has helped to eliminate a severe disease. An important part in this discussion will be to understand that setting the focus on prices of drugs alone may not always result in a functioning market, let a alone the desired outcome.
Episode 2: Contributions of the 2020 economics laureates - or why winning an auction can be cursed
With our guest Prof. Achim Wambach, PhD, president of the ZEW, we discuss what this year's Economics Nobel Prize laureates Paul Milgrom and Robert Wilson have contributed to game theory and auction theory. Here, we look at both: rather theoretical concepts but also their direct applications.
Episode 1: Game theory: Only a subject for Academia or relevant for business?
We discuss with the CEO and co-founder of TWS Partners, Marcus Schreiber, how game theory as a pure academic subject can also be applied in the business context. We also talk about the journey of how he founded TWS Partners as a consultancy specialised in game theory.
