Daniel Kahneman has passed away

I just learned on Bluesky that the American-Israeli psychologist and economist Daniel Kahneman has passed away at the age of 90.

During his long scientific career, Daniel Kahneman helped to show that psychological mechanisms, including cognitive biases, have a substantial influence on human decisions. Trained as a psychologist, his work helped found behavioral economics, a subfield of economics closely related to psychology.

He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 2002.

My condolences to his family and friends.
