Fighting the Dark Side of Algorithms

When they are good, they are very, very good. And when they are bad, they are horrid. Some of the biggest decisions with the biggest impacts on people and businesses are driven by models that some human being, somewhere devised. Harvard Ph.D. Cathy O’Neil says that’s fine, provided that those human beings checked their biases at the door when those models were built. As Ph.D. mathematician turned Wall Street quant jock turned Professor and author, Cathy (aka The Math Babe – her nickname, not ours) will lead a lively discussion with industry experts on the art and science of the data and the algorithms they support on how consumers buy – or whether they can buy at all.
