Weapons of Math Destruction (2016) #books #math

🕦︎ - 2022-10-01

I bought this book in 2018 and read up until half of the last chapter and the conclusion and then... uh... shelved it for a couple of years. I'm here to report that that is not the ideal way to read a book.

I seem to remember what I originally read was quite good, which a bunch of examples - and not much in way of specifics of how these machine learning, artificial intelligence, big data systems actually work.

Reading the remaining part of the book 4 years later it hit me that the conclusion is very USA-centric, which makes sense of course, but for me it felt a little narrow in perspective.
