Our program for the Feb 9th meeting will be Jevin West.   Jevin is an Associate Professor in the Information School at the University of Washington. He is the Director of the new Center for an Informed Public at UW and co-founder of the DataLab. His research and teaching focus on the impact of technology on science and society, with a focus on slowing the spread of misinformation. He is the co-author of the book, “Calling Bullshit: The Art of Skepticism in a Data-Driven World”, which provides a set of tools for questioning numbers, data, and statistics  confidently and without any advanced degree in data science. The book is based on a course he co-developed in 2017 that is now being taught at universities around the globe.
