Today we see politicians, advertisers and even scientists promote half-truths, make predictions from biased data, misrepresent results and boldly defend outright lies to promote specific ends.

How can you tell what's true and what's BS?

Get answers from UW experts in data science, social media and consumer privacy. You'll learn how to spot fake news and bad data, react to viral campaigns and online rants, and find out how your personal data is being collected and used.
