    We live in the age of the algorithm. Increasingly the decisions that affect our lives - where we go to school, whether we get a car loan, how much we pay for health insurance - are being made not by humans but by mathematical models. In theory this should lead to greater fairness. But as Cathy O'Neil reveals in this urgent and necessary book, the opposite is true. Tracing the arc of a person's life, O'Neil exposes the black-box models that shape our future, both as individuals and as a society.

    Who would have though a book about mathematical models would be so interesting and enjoyable. The author will make you thiink a lot about how much they are used in your own life and it is in some cases, sobering.

    Story

    First off let me start by saying I love stories that offer a different perspective than the one normally told. while not altogether trying to sell you on the merits of the Empire it tells of the duality instead and of its people and its many moving parts. Not good or evil, just existing in a galaxy far far away that we've come to know and love.
