Facing Automation Bias In Research

Automation bias is the tendency to favour suggestions from automated decision-making systems and to ignore contradictory information made without automation, even if it is correct. And with the growing dependence upon automated methods, it's a problem in laboratories worldwide.


To err is human. But to really foul things up, you need a computer.
Paul Ehrlich

You may not want to know the computer is wrong; that the methodology is flawed; that those automated data processing tools are screwing things up; that the software gets it wrong.

But you need to know.

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
