Technically Wrong: Sexist Apps, Biased Algorithms, and Other Threats of Toxic Tech

By Sara Wachter Boettcher

Buying groceries, tracking our health, finding a date: whatever we want to do, odds are that we can now do it online. But few of us realize just how many oversights, biases, and downright ethical nightmares are baked inside the tech products we use every day. It's time we change that.

In Technically Wrong, Sara Wachter-Boettcher demystifies the tech industry, leaving those of us on the other side of the screen better prepared to make informed choices about the services we use--and to demand more from the companies behind them.
