Books Recommended

The books recommended are directly about big data, algorithms, privacy, lack of regulation or ethics around automated decision making that result in biased decisions and have a negative impact on social justice and the health of our communities.

The other books and podcasts/documentaries provide background on what caused these areas (and hence the data) to be historically unequal and what are the root causes of social and structural injustices - like policing, mass incarceration, welfare, housing, financial markets, communication, just to name a few.

No matter how good your intentions and coding skills are, if you do not know the basis of the issue, what might be the problems with your data and who should be at the table discussing the biases it is almost impossible to suggest that your algorithm will provide ethical solutions.
