Hello World: Being Human in the Age of Algorithms

By Hannah Fry

Mathematician Hannah Fry strips artificial intelligence down to its simplest form — algorithms — and explains the far-reaching power of a few lines of code. She examines the ethical dilemmas surrounding automation and the trade-offs we’re already being forced to make. This important read invites the reader to consider one of AI’s most pressing questions: what decisions are we willing to cede to automation, and where do we want — or need — to retain control?

Hannah participated in the 2018 Future of Life Award Ceremony, which you can read about here.
