Algorithms are everywhere today, infiltrating all aspects of our lives, and using big data to change how we live on a daily basis. And this is just the beginning of the algorithmic age. Anjan Sundaram, author, journalist and mathematician, travels the world meeting people designing this code and people affected by this algorithmic revolution. Algorithms are the building blocks for almost all advanced technology today, from Amazon shopping recommendations to the most sophisticated artificial intelligence. We see how this code is making and taking our choices; affecting the fate of nations and the freedom of individuals; being used to create virtual beings, communities and worlds, and ultimately changing who we are and what we will become in tomorrow’s world.
