Read Chapters 3, 4, 5

Discussion Questions

  • What are your thoughts on these chapters?
  • At the surface WMDs look great. How do we address the issues of algorithms when they coincide with success?
  • How do we improve the U.S. News college ranking system? (Rankings should not be destiny!)
  • What dangers arise from AI-based advertisement campaigns?
  • Since WMDs disproportionately affect people of color and lower socioeconomic groups, how do we address this reality?
  • Do companies/governments have the right to collect day-to-day data from us? (Ex: facial recognition in public, etc.)
  • The "capture all the data" mentality is commonplace. When should we not include certain data points in models?
  • What other ways are computers amplifying problems in our world?
  • What's your major takeaway from the reading this week?
