Algorithms of Oppression | @UxWien Book Club

November 19, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

You might think that something like a search engine allows for equal access to information. Yet looking deeper into how we discover things, there’s a culture of racism and sexism impacting what we find.

Based on over 6 years of academic research, Safiya Umoja Noble’s book looks into the internet’s biases and how it acts as a machine of oppression. In our next book club, we’ll talk about what she found and discuss how these findings can inform our work as designers.

As always, it isn’t obligatory to read the book to participate – we aim to provide enough information for everyone to be able to join the discussion.
The book club will be held online via Zoom and accompanied by a hands-on Miro board. Book club language is English.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Your hosts
Sabine Ballata & Sarah Hiebl
