Information consumption, confirmation bias becomes formidable foe

Published

on

Confirmation bias is a cognitive bias that refers to the tendency of individuals to favour, interpret, or remember information in a way that confirms their preexisting beliefs or values.

 

This bias can lead to a reinforcement of existing opinions, the maintenance of stereotypes, and the avoidance of challenging or conflicting information.

Social media and news outlets contribute to confirmation bias by tailoring content based on users’ preferences and engagement patterns, creating echo chambers that reinforce existing beliefs.

Algorithms on social media platforms often prioritize information that aligns with users’ views, limiting exposure to diverse perspectives.

“No machine should ever choose to take the life of a human being,” he said, adding that people should not let superpowerful algorithms decide their destiny.
“We would condemn humanity to a future without hope if we took away people’s ability to make decisions about themselves and their lives, by dooming them to depend on the choices of machines,” he warned.
