League of Legends spinoff Teamfight Tactics can reveal to us through gameplay how cognitive biases might be affecting how we make decisions
Like many people, I’ve always tried to ensure I’m making the best possible decision. Amongst the daily choices ranging from “What to have for breakfast?” to “What career do I want?” to “What is my life’s purpose?”, decision fatigue is a very real facet of existing in this lifetime. An anxiety ridden brain, second guessing, data scrambling and thoroughly fact checking seemed to be tied to my decision making process.
So where does the popular MOBA spinoff auto-battler game Teamfight Tactics from Riot Games come into all this? Sometimes gameplay allows human behavior to surface in a way that allows for a different perspective on the self.
Teamfight Tactics (TFT for short), as described from the League of Legends site itself is “a round-based strategy game that pits you against seven opponents in a free-for-all race to build a powerful team that fights on your behalf. Your goal: Be the last person standing.”

Data Science and Analytics market evolves to adapt to the constantly changing economic and business environments. Our latest survey report suggests that as the overall Data Science and Analytics market evolves to adapt to the constantly changing economic and business environments, data scientists and AI practitioners should be aware of the skills and tools that the broader community is working on. A good grip in these skills will further help data science enthusiasts to get the best jobs that various industries in their data science functions are offering.
Everyone is prey to cognitive biases that skew thinking, but data scientists must prevent them from spoiling their work. Learn more about five biases that can all too easily make your seemingly objective work become surprisingly subjective.
The fundamental role of a Data Scientist is to support decision-making based on data. For that to be accomplished a data-driven culture has to be nurtured and that status quo challenged.
The agenda of the talk included an introduction to 3D data, its applications and case studies, 3D data alignment and more.
