CAIDP recommends the AIethicist Bookstore, powered by bookshop.org. Topics include: AI Ethics, Bias & Social Justice; Conext for AI and Data - Bias/Power/Injustice; and Dystopian Futures.
The books recommended here cover topics of AI ethics, big data & social impact, biased algorithms, privacy, lack of regulation or ethics around automated decision making.
There are also books that provide background on what cause these areas (and hence the data) to be historically unequal and what are the root causes of social and structural injustices in these areas - like policing, mass incarceration, welfare, housing, financial markets, communication, just to name a few.

“The United States must work with other democratic countries to establish red lines for certain A.I. applications and ensure fairness, accountability and transparency as A.I. systems are deployed . . . The rate of technological change is accelerating. Countries that seek to preserve fundamental rights must act before it is too late.”
"Algorithmic accountability is a complex topic, but the impact cuts broadly across life in America, from jobs and credit to housing and criminal justice."
“This critical question of automated decision-making lies at the heart of modern data protection law, ensuring fairness and transparency about the decisions impacting individuals.”
"Democratic countries should establish algorithmic transparency to ensure fairness and accountability in the digital world."
“I do want to emphasize how very important it is to move forward today on a project to establish algorithmic transparency and a set of framework principles for the deployment of AI that protects the interests of the individual.”
“As decisions are automated, processes become more opaque, less accountable. . . . At the intersection of law and technology — knowledge of the algorithm is a fundamental right, a human right”

"The United States needs comprehensive privacy legislation to safeguard the personal data of Americans. We must also establish an agency charged with advocating for the privacy interests of America. Surveillance technology takes hold quickly. There is not much time."
