Kevin Slavin: How algorithms shape our world (TED Global)
Kevin Slavin argues that we’re living in a world designed for — and increasingly controlled by — algorithms. In this riveting talk from TEDGlobal, he shows how these complex computer programs determine: espionage tactics, stock prices, movie scripts, and architecture. And he warns that we are writing code we can’t understand, with implications we can’t control.
Version 2.0 of Kevin’s talk on algorithms is both brilliant and wonderful and the kind of storytelling that all TED talks should be.
