  Algorithmic poverty
Kirkpatrick K. Communications of the ACM 64(10): 11-12, 2021.  Type: Article

The lack of transparency in algorithms and the data they use is a matter of current interest. In addition to a nontransparent process, results are also nontransparent, lacking explanation or justification. These problems lead to unfairness and bia...
