Our fourth episode, “Artificial Intelligence and Bias”, features guest speakers Mutale Nkonde, Todd Marlin, and Avi Gesser.  I asked our guests to “recommend an article, book, blog, website, talk, or other resource” for our listeners.  Mutale said:


“I would recommend Weapons of Math Destruction by Cathy O’Neil.  It is 16 case studies of how AI impacts everyday life, and it’s everything from personality tests that we’re often asked to take in employment through the financial models that crashed the market in 2018.  And she even tickles dis- and mis-information, and social media towards the end of the book.  It’s easy to read, she’s a Harvard-trained mathematician and data scientist, and she’s funny.”
