There are so many resources out there now, including the internet, to educate ourselves, so there really is no excuse for not learning. When shopping for books on Amazon, buying can be so easy and convenient. But if you’re hard up and still wanting to boost your knowledge, whether it’s reading about finance, or learning how to knit, or just any kinds of novels, the books available on Amazon will cost you some money, and you have to wait for the books delivery.

There’s this handy chrome extension that will help you out and cut out the expenses of actually owning a book.

Library Extension lets you instantly see if the books you want can be found in your local library

    While you have the option of owning the book and placing it proudly on your shelf (always a feeling I enjoy), you now at least have the option of considering using your local library, and saving your money!

    This convenient and unobtrusive extension can save you a lot of time, avoiding the need to trawl through library websites or shelves. We often forget the option that libraries give us in this digital age, and I would argue they are still a precious resource; to have the option to learn for free and to access thousands of other people’s stories, knowledge and advice.

    If you do decide to use it you can add your favourite local libraries and pick the book up that same day if you like, making delivery even faster than amazon, and keeping your local library going for future generations to enjoy.

    Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

    Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?
    Advertising

    Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

    Does technology have all the answers?

    This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

    Creating technological solutions transparently

    This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

    Technology as the connecting tool

    Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

    “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
