Outnumbered adalah buku karangan David Sumpter, seorang Profesor Matematika Terapan dari Uppsala, Swedia, dimana beliau memimpin tim peneliti tentang perilaku kolektif manusia berdasarkan sains.
Buku Outnumbered secara global membahas tentang bagaimana sains, khususnya Matematika Algoritma, sudah merasuk jauh ke dalam sendi kehidupan manusia. Meningkatnya ketergantungan manusia terhadap teknologi & internet membuka celah bagi para matematikawan & para penggiat data riset utk memantau kehidupan kita sehari2.
Memakai data yg mereka serap secara berkala saat kita tersambung internet utk sekedar belanja online, update status lokasi di medsos, klik like di medsos, buka news online, dll, mrk mampu memprediksi siapa jati diri kita kemarin, hari ini, hingga apa yg akan kita lakukan di masa depan.
Yang menjadi daya tarik Outnumbered adalah pembahasan mengenai Cambridge Analytica yg memakai data pengguna Facebook utk mempengaruhi pemilihan Presiden USA. Bagaimana caranya data lebih dari 87 juta pengguna facebook bisa bocor ?
Cambridge Analytica ( CA ) adalah sebuah badan survey yang di sewa Trump utk membantunya dalam pemilu presiden AS tahun 2016. Menurut mantan karyawan CA, data pengguna FB di dapat dari periset bernama Aleksandr Kogan seorang Rusia berwarga negara Amerika yg bekerja sebagai peneliti di Universitas Cambridge.
Kogan membuat semacam aplikasi kuiz kepribadian yang tergabung ke dalam aplikasi Facebook. Jika kita pengguna FB, pasti kita sering melihat kenalan kita ikut kuis tentang bagaimana kepribadian org berbintang Sagitarius, atau yg lahir di tgl sekian, atau sifat org berdasarkan nama, kuiz – kuiz seperti itu yang menjadi sarana penyaring data pengguna FB. Bahkan bukan hanya yg ikut saja, teman sang peserta kuiz juga bisa menjadi korban yg datanya ikut di sedot, tanpa dia ketahui.

Algorithms are running our society and we don’t really know what they are up to.
 
Our increasing reliance on technology and the internet has opened a window for mathematicians and data researchers to gaze through into our lives. Using the data they are constantly collecting about where we travel, where we shop, what we buy and what interests us, they can begin to predict our daily habits. But how reliable is this data? Without understanding what mathematics can and can’t do, it is impossible to get a handle on how it is changing our lives.
 
In this book, David Sumpter takes an algorithm-strewn journey to the dark side of mathematics. He investigates the equations that analyse us, influence us and will (maybe) become like us, answering questions such as:
 
How does Facebook build a 100-dimensional picture of your personality?
Are Google algorithms racist and sexist?
Why do election predictions fail so drastically?
Are algorithms that are designed to find criminals making terrible mistakes?
What does the future hold as we relinquish our decision-making to machines?
 
Featuring interviews with those working at the cutting edge of algorithm research along with a healthy dose of mathematical self-experiment, Outnumbered will explain how mathematics and statistics work in the real world, and what we should and shouldn’t worry about.
 
A lot of people feel outnumbered by algorithms–don’t be one of them.

Dear Fellow Educators, The word bullying has been around for these last decades. Some countries, like Finland, really take the bullying problem into account. They even utilize scientific-research-based modules to programmatically disarm the bullying in their schools.

We are to take into consideration bullying with its many intertwined aspects: the diverse forms of bullying, the bullies, those being bullied, the parents, the educators in school, the school systems, etc. While other facets are all important, we are to pay special attention to those being bullied.
