In this video, Kevin Slavin talks about how algorithms shape our world from a talk at TED.
Why is this on GreenJoyment?
An algorithm is a new kind of being. It’s not man, and it’s not nature… it’s sort of a thing that has been created by man and nature’s interaction. And algorithms are going to determine all of our lives in the next 50 years. Heck, it’s highly likely that the only reason you’re reading this post is because of Google’s algorithm.
This is interesting food for thought, and affects every person on the planet. That’s why this video is shared here today.
