We will discuss what makes a data practice a WMD, how to spot them, and how to disarm them. This presentation will be based on the book Weapons of Math Destruction by Cathy O'Neil. There is no need to read the book before attending, but feel free to read along beforehand to better engage in group discussion and avoid any unwanted 'spoilers.'
