Weapons of Math Destruction

Weapons of Math Destruction
Published: 9/6/2016

Whether you’re fluent in Java or have never once written a line of code, you will have a hard time putting this book down. O’Neil is conscious of the fact that those interested in the ethics of Big Data come from all fields and backgrounds, and carefully crafts her novel such that all people can gain something from reading it. Weapons of Math Destruction is structured in such a way that each chapter delves into a different area in which Big Data and pernicious algorithms are causing destruction (hence the title), from college admissions to landing credit to so many more. This is a great read for those who are interested in the field of ethical technology, but who either do not possess a technical background or are just starting to get involved in the field.
