March 31 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The Irving K. Barber Faculty of Science invites you to attend the Distinguished Speaker Series with Dr. Derek Muller, the creator and director of Veritasium, a science-based YouTube channel.
With more than 11.5 million subscribers, Veritasium features science and engineering videos, experiments, demos and interviews. His channel provides a virtual space for scientific dialogue with a goal to make science accessible, clear and interesting to his audience.
Today we have better access to information than any humans before us, but we are also exposed to more misinformation than ever before. How do we figure out what is true?
On March 31, join Dr. Derek Muller’s discussion on cognitive biases that unconsciously shape our judgements and particular modes of thinking that avoid these pitfalls.
