Entering the Age of Algorithms
Some say, we are entering an “Age of Algorithms.”
Algorithms do and will continue to define how we learn, teach, make decisions, run businesses, develop strategies, discover information, run countries, interact with friends, and read the news. Today, algorithmic technology underlies the core functioning of our society.
The questions we may ask about this transition are countless.
Will the proliferation of algorithms diminish or improve human critical thinking capabilities? Will it make us better decision-makers or hinder our development? Will machines make humans irrelevant?
