Accessible introduction to the use of algorithms in everyday life.

Fry’s book walks its reader round the usage of algorithms in everyday life. By the way, they are everywhere these days. She concludes that there’s no such thing as a fair algorithm. They all have biases. Moreover, they will make mistakes because they are not omniscient. Her major insight at this stage is to take the algorithm off its pedestal. She advocates using them to ‘support humans in their decisions, rather than instruct them’.
