Product Details


“It reads like a dystopian novel but it’s written in a way that feels like I’m having a conversation with the person who wrote it. The scariest part though is that it’s all based on facts.” —Anamita Guha, IBM

“Representation within the data sets training these systems, the models representing different segmentations of life, and the workforce creating these systems is key to this movement. If we don’t have fair representation, entire segments of life will silently be destroyed by automated systems. This book helps bring these issues to life in a way that will enable us to have a larger conversation about it.” —Lauren Mosenthal, Guild Education

“Our world is a mosaic that is influenced by information and disinformation. This book will bring all the scattered news stories you may or may not have heard before into a single story that puts the puzzle pieces together and enables even the least technical of people to understand what’s going on. After unpacking everything it will then provide you with the tools to make our world a better place, through technology—not by eliminating it.” —Adam Jones, HUGE

“No matter what your political beliefs or upbringing, we need more people reading this so we can have a larger conversation about what’s going on behind the scenes and figure out how to make the future safe.” —Rachel Beisel, Cable Labs
