Cathy O'Neil went from being a Wall Street quant to a member of Occupy Wall Street when she saw the ways that Big Data were being used to affect the lives of people every day. In Weapons of Math Destruction, she explores the algorithms that control us, from the way teachers are evaluated, to how loans are granted (or denied). She argues that rather than the impartial arbiters these algorithms are touted to be, they are dangerously opaque and flawed.
