Dr. Santos has also learned that there are some biases that are unique to humans. In her talk, she’ll discuss one such unique bias: our human tendency to copy the ideas and beliefs of others. She’ll discuss why humans alone are prone to conforming to others, and also what we can do to curb this automatic bias in order to increase creativity and innovation.
