MƒA Thursday Think

Weapons of Math Destruction with Dr. Cathy O'Neil


In this talk, author and former director of the Lede Program in Data Practices at Columbia University Dr. Cathy O’Neil will expose the mathematical models that shape our future, both as individuals and as a society. These “weapons of math destruction” score teachers and students, sort résumés, grant (or deny) loans, evaluate workers, target voters, set parole, and monitor our health.
