RSA – Cathy O’Neill on algorithms
We live in the age of algorithms – mathematical models are sorting our job applications, curating our online worlds, influencing our elections, and even deciding whether or not we should go to prison. But how much do we really know about them?
NiceShit designed & directed this animated explainer RSA London to go along with the words of the amazing Cathy O’Neil. She is a kickass mathematician and In this excerpt, she focuses on algorithms, how they have an effect on us and how they are not as fair as we’d like them to be.
Former Wall St quant, Cathy O’Neil, exposes the reality behind the AI, and explains how algorithms are just as prone to bias and discrimination as the humans who program them.
