Law & Tech Book Club: “Weapons of Math Destruction” by Cathy O´Neil
The Duke Center on Law and Tech, DiversifyIT, Ethical Tech, and the Law & Tech Society invite you to join our first book club in 2021 to discuss the book “Weapons of Math Destruction” by Cathy O´Neil. We will focus on chapter 1 (Bomb Parts: What is a Model?), chapter 5 (Civilian Casualties: Justice in the Age of Big Data), and chapter 10 (The Targeted Citizen: Civic Life). The discussion will center on how might we defuse the algorithmic “bombs” in big data and machine learning. All ideas and all Duke community members are welcome (faculty, staff, students of all levels/departments)! Online copies of the book can be accessed by Duke community members through Duke Libraries at

Sponsored by the Duke Center on Law & Tech.
