About Data Conscience
Data Conscience: Algorithmic Siege on our Humanity delivers an incisive and eye-opening discussion of how to fix tech’s dominant philosophy of “move fast and break things” with a renewed focus on equity and oppression. The book explores how to address discrimination in the digital data space with several known algorithms, including social network analysis, linear regression and sentiment analysis.
Expansive discussions of the importance of transparency and how to put computational thinking into practice
Strategies for encouraging accountability in tech and making misleading data visualization a thing of the past
Governance strategies—based on law, algorithms and forever learning—that can improve the way we interact with data
"Yes! I'm about halfway through your book and found the first chapter a great resource for data professional novices and for people who are working in data spaces but aren't traditional data professionals.
Your book is really accessible."
