    Interesting Perspective

    Definitely a good read to understand the various ways in which big data is impacting our lives and the ethics questions these applications raise. However it doesn't provide an objective construct to define a 'WMD' and how to mitigate its effects. For the most part it looks aa though the whole book is one big rant against using maths or algorithms. The argument doesn't cite statistics to speak about the extent of the suggested injustice. It is too heavily one sided in its argument. Nevertheless an original piece of comprehensive work that provokes new age data economy managers to consider the social impact, ethics and fairness elements in their quest to optimize businesses. Worth a read.

    An eye-opener to AI

    A very clear explanation how Big Data Algorithms victimize the poor and vulnerable. There are no intimidating formulas or equations, just clear, understandable English.

    Excellent read

    This book is an important read for anyone interested in justice issues and those who may believe in the neutrality of Big Data. It should be required reading for policy makers, both public and private.
