Video Of The Week: Simon Singh on Confirmation Bias

My friend Mark Ghuneim sent me two books last week, Simon Singh’s The Code Book and Bruce Schneier’s Secrets and Lies. I am reading The Code Book first and really enjoying it. So I went on YouTube this morning and started watching Simon Singh talks. There are a bunch of them.

My favorite is this short (~6 mins) video where Simon demonstrates how the brain is susceptible to confirmation bias. It’s pretty great.
