  3. Digital technology which could help the strengthen the social safety net is used as a surveillance net to monitor, regulate, and scrutinize the poor who come in its gaze It is not the technology that is the problem so much as the values of the administrators and politicians who weld it They make algorithms to exclude funds and drive down costs and punish the poor It goes back to the American attitude towards poverty as an aberration from the norm and a moral failing of the individual instead of [...]


  4. Virginia Eubanks has done all of us a favor, and we should really appreciate how difficult this must have been She looks at a large stretch of American history, in how it treats its poor and oppressed minority groups and uses technology to do so This is not an easy or pleasant thing to come to grips with, but Ms Eubanks does it with this very readable and succinct volume She leaves nothing out and brings us to an overall understanding of what has occurred and the general direction.Everyone will [...]



  5. Target, track, punish Repeat.Notwithstanding what the French wrote on the Statue of Liberty, America hates its poor It will spend billions to deny them help In Automating Inequality, Virginia Eubanks says we manage the poor so we don t have to eradicate poverty Instead, we have developed a Digital Poorhouse high tech containment of the poor and recording of their every action, association and activity The great innovation today is the prediction model, using the child, the parents, neighbors and [...]


  6. Anyone who has ever claimed that technological development is linked to social progress must read this book I was blown away I want to give a special mention to the Oath of Non Harm for an Age of Big Data Everyone working in government, technology, or really anywhere should have a copy of this sitting on their desk.


  7. A copy of this title has been provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Automating Inequality explores the current state of public assistance programs in the United States through 3 fascinating case studiesa disastrous automated benefits eligibility system in Indiana, The coordinated entry system for the unhoused in L.A that mines large volumes of sensitive data and leaves many falling through the cracks, and an attempt to predict child abuse in Allegheny County th [...]


  8. This book is not only an excellent eye opener but also an excruciatingly painful but hard look at the essence of the United States The book is extremely well researched It not only looks at the history of the country but also dissects, analyzes and connects every dot of the American society, its economy, technology and politics Automating Inequality should be mandatory to be studied in every American school maybe then the country has a chance to drag itself out of the hole it s sinking in now I [...]


  9. Starts very strongly with a historical description of poor houses in America Then looks at a few examples of how algorithms are used in Indiana, Los Angeles, and Allegheny County, PA Each algorithm, despite good intentions, lack a human touch and unlike our criminal justice system where we would rather have 10 guilty people be free than one innocent person be imprisoned this shows the optimizations were aimed an providing 10 needy people no assistance so long as it prevents any person who may no [...]


  10. Thoughtful examination of an issue that isn t getting enough attention.Ironically while reading the book I encountered someone I know well having the very issues the book describes in Indiana A service denial with no explanation.We have failed our most vulnerable citizens and in turn we are facing unforeseen costs and challenges.


  11. This potentially wonky subject ends up being incredibly well reported and well told, in the language of real people not an easy feat If we look at these three chapters not as a comprehensive rundown but rather as pinpoints of a world swimming in data, it dawns on you that our society is getting really, really terrifying and we have a sliver of time left to change it.


  12. Great Survey of Different Programs in Different CitiesI would encourage anybody interested in the topic s of poverty, the use of big data for social change, human services, and or criminal justice to read this.
