Automating Inequality: How High-Tech Tools Profile, Police, and Punish the Poor, by Virginia Eubanks


Wow. History truly repeats itself.

How technology is propagating racism and anti-poor people through ostensibly neutral algorithms and computer databases.

Through three clear examples, the author shows what has been happening for decades and is only accelerating. We continue to criminalize being poor, and are going to even greater lengths to deny them benefits and privileges based on supposedly race neutral and objective computer results.
