Great read

My favorite book on the subject. Easy to read and informative.

Great book on algorithms and the harm they can cause

I really liked it. It's an in-depth look at some of the algorithms that influence our lives, the assumptions they're based on, and why those assumptions ultimately end up causing harm. We all ought to be a bit more critical of the machines running our lives and Cathy O'Neil does a good job explaining why. Read this if you're interested in Privacy and/or Data Science.
