Seeing with Your Brain: Cognitive Bias in the Forensic Sciences
Over 2,000 cases of wrongful conviction have been discovered in the United States, and forensic science errors have been found in an alarming 24% of these cases. A growing body of research suggests that some such errors may be due to confirmation bias -- i.e., the innate and unconscious tendency to interpret information in ways that validate one's pre-existing beliefs. This talk will review (a) the psychology of cognitive bias, (b) the causes and effects of cognitive bias in the forensic sciences, and (c) ongoing reform efforts to address the problem.
