"Bias in algorithms is a major topic at the moment and, for that reason alone, everyone should read Sara Wachter-Boettcher's book...A must-read in the post-Cambridge Analytica world." Best tech books 2018, Evening Standard
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 ask how all these digital products are designed or why. It s time we changed that. Many of the services we rely on are full of oversights, biases and downright ethical nightmares. Chatbots that harass women. Sign-up forms that fail anyone who s not straight. Social media sites that send messages about dead relatives. Algorithms that put more black people behind bars.
Technically Wrong takes an unflinching look at the values, processes and assumptions that lead to these problems and more. 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 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

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.
