Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #443 - How Big Data Ruins Lives
And once again, something about which you are not interested at all, Mom, but something I am re-posting to read it, think about it, and remember it. Also, to share it with all two of my readers who may find it interesting.
I may add comments HERE:
LATER... after I read and think. But for now, in catch up mode, I am just posting and re-publishing.
Thank you Boing Boing and Corey Doctorow.
ORIGINAL TO BE FOUND HERE:
Weapons of Math Destruction: invisible, ubiquitous algorithms are ruining millions of lives
I've been writing about the work of Cathy "Mathbabe" O'Neil for years: she's a radical data-scientist with a Harvard PhD in mathematics, who coined the term "Weapons of Math Destruction" to describe the ways that sloppy statistical modeling is punishing millions of people every day, and in more and more cases, destroying lives. Today, O'Neil brings her argument to print, with a fantastic, plainspoken, call to arms called (what else?)Weapons of Math Destruction.
Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
I miss you so very much, Mom.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
