I just read this review of the book "Weapons of Math Destruction". It looks like a really awesome thought provoking book for the issues to think about when doing data science. I really like the quote,

"Models are opinions embedded in mathematics."

:smile: I'll let you all know when I get a change to read the book!

@erictleung nice quote! Absolutely agree: and that as far as a model can really represent someone's opinions - sometimes we don't have the enough math for that... so it is always that, a model.
