Reality Is Not What We Can See

Some physicists, mind you, not many of them, are physicist-poets.<p>They see the world or, more adequately, physical reality, as a lyrical narrative written in some hidden code that the human mind can decipher.<p>Carlo Rovelli, the Italian physicist and author, is one of them. Following his best-seller</i> …

Data scientist Cathy O’Neil on the cold destructiveness of big data

Big data promises fairness. With enough information about individuals and populations, we can design algorithms that will identify the best possible answer to a given question, free of human bias. Algorithms, after all, are not racist, sexist, or elitist.<p>Or are they?<p>In her new book, Weapons of Math …
