Though modern society has connected us to one another like never before, it seems more difficult to speak with and listen to others who share differing opinions and viewpoints. This is a problem for multiple reasons, each of which comes back to a single theme: bias. In the interest of preserving civil conversation, we will explore the roots of these problems in psychology, technology, and culture, and share the means to overcome bias in these areas.
