WEAPONS OF MATH DESTRUCTION How Big Data Increases Inequality and Threatens Democracy

by | Read by Cathy O'Neil

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

O'Neil leverages her experience as a data analyst to discuss the ways that big data affect the realms of education, criminal justice, and insurance. Simply put, the information can deeply impact people's choices and, more specifically, negatively affect disadvantaged populations. The author narrates this production in a clear, matter-of-fact tone that comes at a fast clip. Her voice engages listeners throughout the production, particularly when she uses emphasis to stress the importance of her message. Her prose and narration blend well to express the necessity to deliberate the perils of an increasingly quantified world that lacks checks and balances.
