Listened Algorithms and data โ€“ what does the future hold? Chips with Everything podcast by Jordan Erica Webber from the Guardian

Can the messy and complex world we live in be reduced to algorithms? And should we even try? Mathematician and lecturer Hannah Fry attempts to answer all this and more

In an interview on the Chips with Everything podcast, Hannah Fry discusses her new book Hello World. In it she discusses the rise of algorithms and computational thinking throughout the modern world. Fry paints a picture of where we currently are and possibly going. In doing so she warns:

We all need to be a bit more literate and a lot more sceptical.

It is interesting to listen to this alongside Cathy O’Neill’s Weapons of Math Destruction and
Adam Greenfield’s Radical Technologies.
