    Rather overtaken by events now that we have (or rather don't have) cambridge analytics using facebook data to target political adverts.

    It also, indirectly, provides insights into the reasoning behind the development of the algorithmic transparency requirements of the eu gdpr and the likely issues that developers of these opaque algorithms will face after 25 may 2018 when gdpr becomes fully operational.

    It is very likely that each of the documented examples in the book will become the focus of court cases in the near future as a result of both the lack of transparency and individual damage resulting from the application of the algorithms.

    It would be very interesting if cathy o'neil would consider writing a follow-up book on the impact of gdpr on these wmd, noting that gdpr affects all organisations world-wide who process data about eu citizens, with very large fines in cases on deliberate non-compliance.

    I urge anyone working in data to read cathy o'neil's book and try to work with data and algorithms with more thought.

    The author recognises that the use of data and complex mathematical algorithms can bring about efficiencies and increased fairness by removing a human element, but they can lead to distortion and discrimination against certain populations, the poor and disadvantaged being mentioned most frequently.

    Yes, not many of us know how a complex car engine works, but we know when it goes wrong - this cannot be said of algorithmic systems, where we may have no idea as to the accuracy of the output or the inference it's giving us.
