"In Artificial Unintelligence, Meredith Broussard argues that our collective enthusiasm for applying computer technology to every aspect of life has resulted in a tremendous amount of poorly designed systems. We are so eager to do everything digitally--hiring, driving, paying bills, even choosing romantic partners--that we have stopped demanding that our technology actually work. Broussard, a software developer and journalist, reminds us that there are fundamental limits to what we can (and should) do with technology. With this book, she offers a guide to understanding the inner workings and outer limits of technology--and issues a warning that we should never assume that computers always get things right. Making a case against technochauvinism--the belief that technology is always the solution--Broussard argues that it's just not true that social problems would inevitably retreat before a digitally enabled Utopia. To prove her point, she undertakes a series of adventures in computer programming. She goes for an alarming ride in a driverless car, concluding "the cyborg future is not coming any time soon"; uses artificial intelligence to investigate why students can't pass standardized tests; deploys machine learning to predict which passengers survived the Titanic disaster; and attempts to repair the U.S. campaign finance system by building AI software. If we understand the limits of what we can do with technology, Broussard tells us, we can make better choices about what we should do with it to make the world better for everyone."--Amazon.com.… (mere)

This is much more of an “it’s not you, it’s me” rating. I’ve renewed this book three times and have struggled to get into it, despite being very interested in the material. So I would not discourage you from reading it. ( )

This was excellent. I learned a lot and got mad a lot and learned a very important word: technochauvanism-the belief that tech is always the answer. Of course this belief also has an impact on the people left out of tech-basically anyone who isn’t a white, straight cis male.

There are very important stories in here about classroom textbooks and standardized testing, the Titanic and predicting who would die in the disaster and why you can never predict something with 100% confidence, why self-driving cars will never work and why we won’t want to drive them anyway, and an interesting history of the tech movement and why we have the current white, straight cis male dominated field of tech.

Highly recommend this book. Not too technical for people who have never programmed anything-heck you can even do some beginner programming if you want because the author teaches you how.

Tech is not going to save the world, people are. ( )

Why computers are not as smart as people assume, and why real artificial intelligence is not in our immediate futures. talks about how the biases and assumptions of developers colors the tech we use and rely on. ( )

Buoni spunti, ma un po' troppo di parte

Il titolo di questo libro è sprezzante: ma in fin dei conti è quello che penso anch'io. Nonostante i grandi successi degli algoritmi, infatti, non possiamo certo dire di essere arrivati a una vera intelligenza artificiale, anche nel senso debole turinghiano di un sistema che possa essere scambiato per un essere umano. In pratica i sistemi AI sono ormai più bravi di noi in tanti campi specifici, ma manca ancora loro una visione globale.
Detto questo, il libro mi è sembrato però essere non ben riuscito. Il testo è diviso in tre parti: nella prima viene rapidamente raccontato come funziona un programma e come si fa data journalism, cioè come usare le informazioni che possiamo trovare per fare investigazioni; credo però che se uno non sa di cosa si parla non lo imparerà certo qui. Nella seconda parte Broussard mostra come alcuni dei "grandi successi dell'Intelligenza Artificiale", come le automobili che si guidano da sole, in realtà non funzionano se non in ambienti molto controllati; questa secondo me è la parte migliore del testo. Infine l'ultima sezione è troppo legata alla visione personale dell'autrice, e non mi ha detto molto. Diciamo che questo non sarebbe certo il testo che consiglierei come primo impatto rispetto ai problemi dell'AI. ( )

What "data journalist" Broussard provides here is sort of a shorter version of Clive Thompson's _Coders_ with, to be sure, somewhat more emphasis on AI-type software. Issues of social justice and "technochauvinism" get a lot of her attention, while those of privacy get too little. She explains how there is nothing magical in machine learning and favors a humans-in-the-loop variety of AI. The most interesting (to me) chapter delves into her skepticism that fully autonomous cars will ever be a reality.
