Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism

Autor: Safiya Umoja Noble

Editorial: NYU Press

Categoria: Tecnologies de la comunicació

Enllaç: https://www.amazon.com/Algorithms-Oppression-Search-Engines-Reinforce/dp/1479849944

 

 

Through an analysis of textual and media searches as well as extensive research on paid online advertising, Noble exposes a culture of racism and sexism in the way discoverability is created online. As search engines and their related companies grow in importance—operating as a source for email, a major vehicle for primary and secondary school learning, and beyond—understanding and reversing these disquieting trends and discriminatory practices is of utmost importance.

An original, surprising and, at times, disturbing account of bias on the internet, Algorithms of Oppression contributes to our understanding of how racism is created, maintained, and disseminated in the 21st century.
