Technically Wrong: Sexist Apps, Biased Algorithms, and Other Threats of Toxic Tech (English Edition) 1er Édition, Format Kindle
“An entertaining romp that tells us where and why the tech industry, once America’s darling, went wrong, and what it might do to recover its good graces.” —Tim Wu, author of The Master Switch
Buying groceries, tracking our health, finding a date: whatever we want to do, odds are that we can now do it online. But few of us realize just how many oversights, biases, and downright ethical nightmares are baked inside the tech products we use every day. It’s time we change that.
In Technically Wrong, Sara Wachter-Boettcher demystifies the tech industry, leaving those of us on the other side of the screen better prepared to make informed choices about the services we use—and to demand more from the companies behind them.

Description du produit
Revue de presse
"Technically Wrong is a must-read for anyone interested in the invisible biases of the tech industry that creeps into digital products and affects us all...This is a powerful read reflecting on the prejudices that lurk within a powerful industry."
--"The 25 best books for IT leaders", IT Pro
"Technology permeates life, from grocery shopping to dating apps. Yet we rarely question its design or aims. Web consultant Sara Wachter-Boettcher proffers a damning critique of the ethical dilemmas it poses, and why we need to demand more accountability from tech creators."--Nature
"Sara Wachter-Boettcher sets out to demystify the insidious power of algorithms in this illuminating study of tech design. Thoughtful and entertaining, the book encourages its readers to give their apps a critical eye, considering the many ways biased programming can influence users. This argument for greater diversity in the technology industry is an important call-to-arms." --"The best books of 2018 in tech, science, business and ideas", Wired --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition paperback.

I read the book after it was recommended to me at a tech conference. Since I read it, I've leant my copy to various colleagues and have been raving about it ever since.
I'd highly recommend it to anyone who works in tech or is interested in how technology affects our lives.
More worrying than the many stories that shock, surprise, and upset are the ones that don't.
The stories that you recognise as being uncomfortably familiar serve as a much needed reminder that we must try harder, do better and be better.
We may have come a long way (??), but we still have a long way to go.
Moreover most of the facts stated are retrieved from blogpost and Medium - this is not scientific at all. In the author's point of view all those mentioned problems are due to the 'white male tech world'. This is just a one-sided view and not really reflective.
