Episode 39 – Dr. Safiya Noble: Algorithms of Oppression

On this episode, we talk with Dr. Safyia U. Noble about her latest book, Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism. Many of us rely on search engines every day, but what if they aren’t as objective as we think? Dr. Noble tells us about her research about Internet search algorithms, how results are generated, and what’s at stake as we come to rely on these tools more and more.
