Algorithms are increasingly critical infrastructure. There are algorithms for search, data analysis, encryption, stock trading, machine learning, medical diagnosis, and dating. They operate in sectors from finance to medicine to telecommunications. What is a good algorithm? How do we ensure that algorithms operate fairly, transparently and protect fundamental rights? When does the rule of algorithms conflict with the rule of law? When should algorithms displace human-given reasons? What are the greatest risks of the use of algorithms? Should algorithms be owned and controlled?
