Weapons of math destruction : how big data increases inequality and threatens democracy by Cathy O'Neil( Book )

55 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 2,522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We live in the age of the algorithm. Increasingly, the decisions that affect our lives (where we go to school, whether we get a car loan, how much we pay for health insurance) are being made not by humans, but by mathematical models. In theory, this should lead to greater fairness: everyone is judged according to the same rules, and bias is eliminated. But as Cathy O'Neil reveals in this book, the opposite is true. The models being used today are opaque, unregulated, and uncontestable, even when they are wrong. Most troubling, they reinforce discrimination: if a poor student can't get a loan because a lending model deems him too risky (by virtue of his zip code), he is then cut off from the kind of education that could pull him out of poverty, and a vicious spiral ensues. Models are propping up the lucky and punishing the downtrodden, creating a 'toxic cocktail for democracy.' Welcome to the dark side of big data. Tracing the arc of a person's life, O'Neil exposes the black box models that shape our future, both as individuals and as a society. These 'weapons of math destruction' score teachers and students, sort résumés, grant (or deny) loans, evaluate workers, target voters, set parole, and monitor our health. O'Neil calls on modelers to take more responsibility for their algorithms and on policy makers to regulate their use. But in the end, it is up to us to become more savvy about the models that govern our lives

On being a data skeptic by Cathy O'Neil( )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Data is here, it's growing, and it's powerful."" Author Cathy O'Neil argues that the right approach to data is skeptical, not cynical--it understands that, while powerful, data science tools often fail. Data is nuanced, and ""a really excellent skeptic puts the term 'science' into 'data science.'"" The big data revolution shouldn't be dismissed as hype, but current data science tools and models shouldn't be hailed as the end-all-be-all, either
Angriff der Algorithmen Wie sie Wahlen manipulieren, Berufschancen zerstören und unsere Gesundheit gefährden by Cathy O'Neil( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in German and Undetermined and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Algorithmen nehmen Einfluss auf unser Leben: Von ihnen hängt es ab, ob man etwa einen Kredit für sein Haus erhält und wie viel man für die Krankenversicherung bezahlt. Cathy O'Neil, ehemalige Hedgefonds-Managerin und heute Big-Data-Whistleblowerin, erklärt, wie Algorithmen in der Theorie objektive Entscheidungen ermöglichen, im wirklichen Leben aber mächtigen Interessen folgen. Algorithmen nehmen Einfluss auf die Politik, gefährden freie Wahlen und manipulieren über soziale Netzwerke sogar die Demokratie. Cathy O'Neils dringlicher Appell zeigt, wie sie Diskriminierung und Ungleichheit verstärken und so zu Waffen werden, die das Fundament unserer Gesellschaft erschüttern. Cathy O'Neil, 1972 geboren, ist Mathematikerin und hat in Harvard promoviert. Sie arbeitete zunächst als Dozentin, dann als Hedgefonds-Managerin, bevor sie begann, sich bei Occupy Wall Street zu engagieren. Inzwischen ist sie eine der profiliertesten Kritikerinnen der Digitalbranche und hat den Begriff 'Weapons of Math Destruction' (WMDs) geprägt. Heute arbeitet sie als Datenanalystin und Bloggerin. Cathy O'Neil lebt mit ihrer Familie in New York

A former Wall Street quant sounds an alarm on the mathematical models that pervade modern life--and threaten to rip apart our social fabricWe live in the age of the algorithm.

BUILDING TRUST IN A SMART SOCIETY : managing in a modular, agile and decentralized way by Sander Klous( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building trust in a smart society asks one essential question: how can we manage complexity in a world where interactions become more data-rich and more global? The idea of an increasingly algorithm-based set of systems for running our lives provokes fear in a lot of people, and there certainly are ethical and technical dilemmas to contend with. We hear about the poorly controlled financial systems responsible for the stock market crash of 2008 and wonder if the system is now running us. The first self-replenishing fridge goes on sale and we start to think it can't be long until the machines take over - Terminator-like. And when even our landmark political decisions seem to be at the mercy of b̀ots' and the tweets they send out is it any wonder we despair of our technological future? So is there a positive side to this complex world? There are in fact huge possibilities here for those willing to evolve alongside the technology and learn to use it to their advantage. Technology will (some would say has to) continue to develop, so how might leaders and business owners work with it? At the heart of Building trust in a smart society is a MAD idea - that by throwing off traditional organizational systems and taking a modular, agile and decentralized approach, businesses can evolve and grow, while those unwilling to adapt are left behind. Complexity can become opportunity. Building trust in a smart society is essential reading for those willing to embrace the future and change the way they interact with the world
