Kevin Slavin: How Algorithms Shape Our World

August 25th, 2011
Via: TED: http://www.ted.com/talks/kevin_slavin_ho...world.html

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.
