Technically Wrong: Sexist Apps, Biased Algorithms, and Other Threats of Toxic Tech Relié – 10 novembre 2017
A revealing look at how tech industry bias and blind spots get baked into digital products and harm us all.
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.

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.
