This morning we listened to a segment on NPR’s Morning Edition titled “Don’t Think Your Bias Can Boss You Around? David Byrne Says Think Again”
The story was about how Byrne, founder of the rock band Talking Heads, decided to create an experiential theater piece called “The Institute Presents: Neurosociety” at Pace Art + Technology in Menlo Park, California. The experience takes a playful dive into how our brains can be influenced by cognitive biases to draw conclusions and make decisions that may not match up with objective reality (whatever that is).
