M12148: Detecting fake news in Spark 2018 (Mar. 17 - 18, 2018)
This class will teach you to think critically about 'facts' presented in the news, media, and social networks like Facebook, Twitter, etc. How do you know whether the facts reported at CNN or Fox News were genuine, or 'alternative' facts? Can you find flaws in the statistical study that claims that storks deliver babies? And what is wrong with this nice looking infographic in the latest newspaper? This class will help you to spot 'fake news' in the wild.
