Understand Critical Thinking in the Tech Age

It can be tempting to grasp for a conclusion too quickly, and with the current overabundance of information, we could also just as easily never finish slogging our way through a problem.

This course is about navigating such waters by applying critical thinking—knowing how to use reasoning and evidence and in particular to apply it to technology, so that we don’t become mere pawns in some larger game. And it covers knowing where we can actually outperform the machines, and how to think about the process of thinking itself.
