Eli Pariser on Discrimination - Dictionary of Arguments
Discrimination/Software/Pariser: Problem: a software that, for example, examines a company's hiring practices and randomly picks out nine white persons could specify that this company is not interested in hiring persons of color and filter them out from the outset. (1) This problem is called "over-adjustment" among programmers.
Over-adjustment/Pariser: becomes a central and irreducible problem of the filter bubble, because over-adjustment and stereotyping are synonymous here.
Such stereotypes can cause your creditworthiness to be downgraded because your friends do not pay their debts on time.
