This session will address the what and why of critical thinking. Employers value workers who know how to think critically, because they can be trusted to make decisions independently and will not need constant handholding. In the era of AI, critical thinking becomes even more important as AI consists of a set of algorithms or rules, the outputs of which must be judged across multiple criteria, including moral and ethical considerations. We will illustrate different barriers for critical thinking, including both cognitive biases and statistical biases, giving examples of each. We are all biased to some extent, and the algorithms that constitute AI technology may be biased as well. We will then discuss seven ways that one can think more critically and overcome these barriers, providing examples of each. This is a light session with numerous examples that should help you examine your own thought processes and enable you to think more critically.
