Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Fantastic, wide-ranging and free flowing lecture on the Algorithmic Condition by Mireille Hildebrandt. She covers issues such as

  • Agency, Game Theory & Nudging
  • Categorization & Golden Cages
  • Outsourcing Cognition & Freedo
  • Uncertainty & the Burden of Proof
  • Cybernetics, Ambiguity & Objectivity
  • Assumptions, Biases & Watchdogs

This lecture / interview was conducted as part of the Painted by Numbers project of the Word-Information Institute. The lecture is 55 minutes long, and worth every minute. It complements nicely Stefano Harney's lecture / interview on Algorithmic Institutions conducted for the same project.
