#### Storyboard Text

• I'm not so sure
• Box A contains either \$1,000,000 or \$0 while Box B contains \$1,000! Do you want Box A or both?
• This guy is so dumb the answer is obvious
• Box A
• Box B
• Does that change your mind?
• Well since you Box A might be empty, you may as well take both!
• Keep in mind that are perfectly accurate predictor has already decided the contents of Box A
• Box A
• Box B
• Well the expected value of A is \$500,000 whereas both is \$501,000
• Box A
• Well this is actually a problem called Newcomb's Paradox
• Box B
• Box A
• Box B
• It states that the predictor knows what you are going to do. If you take both, it will place 0\$ in Box B. However if you take just Box A it will put \$1,000,000 in it.
• So that means that you should only take Box A?
• Box A
• Box B
• Well that doesn't make any sense because the expected value of both is greater than that of just Box A!
• Yes that's correct!
• Box A
• Box B
