The Age of Algorithms (Cambridge University Press)
Friday, 17 April 2020

In this book, authors Serge Abiteboul and Gilles Dowek argue that algorithms are probably the most sophisticated tools that people have had at their disposal since the beginnings of human history. They have transformed science, industry, society, but the authors argue that algorithms are what we made them. And they will be what we want them to be: it's up to us to choose the world we want to live in.
