Description

"Algorithms decide who gets a loan, who gets a job interview, who gets insurance and much more -- but they don't automatically make things fair. Mathematician and data scientist Cathy O'Neil coined a term for algorithms that are secret, important and harmful: "weapons of math destruction." Learn more about the hidden agendas behind the formulas." (https://www.ted.com/talks/cathy_o_neil_the_era_of_blind_faith_in_big_data_must_end?)
