Evan Hurwitz is a South African Information Engineer. He obtained his BSc Engineering (Electrical) (2004), his MSc Engineering (2006) from the University of the Witwatersrand and PhD from the University of Johannesburg. He is known for his work on teaching a computer how to bluff which was widely covered by the magazine New Scientist.[1] Hurwitz together with Tshilidzi Marwala proposed that there is less level of information asymmetry between two artificial intelligent agents than between two human agents and that the more artificial intelligence there is in the market the less is the volume of trades in the market.[2][3]
