But mathematical models are steadily controlling more and more aspects of our lives that are not so commonly acknowledged-from our college choices to our job prospects, and even our ability to take out loans or insurance. Learn about the dark inner workings of algorithm technology, and how programmed models are increasingly deciding what many of our futures will look like.Weapons of Math Destruction is an exploration into how mathematical models are impacting on society, and the ways that they are serving to reinforce existing social problems. Its findings are fascinating and concerning, as frequently these models contain built-in prejudice, resulting in further penalization of the already disadvantaged, and a perpetuation of inequalities.You will learn:How algorithms are determining the outcome at key stages in our livesWhy mathematical models are causing the poor to get poorer and the rich to get richerHow we are being categorized unknowingly-and how this affects our opportunitiesWhat makes an algorithm dangerous, and why they are so powerful.
