Writing a book is a desire that, consciously or unconsciously, many of us have. At the end of the day, it is proof that we have a certain knowledge on a subject that allows us to adopt that role of "teacher". I -who have spent 25 years dedicating myself to a greater or lesser extent to teaching- always had in mind the idea of writing one, although it was never more than an idea, because too many doubts came to mind: will there be any interested publisher? How long would it take? Do you get a fee per book sold?
I recently had the opportunity to attend a presentation on the " justice " and " injustice " of algorithms.
