The "Full Frontal" host explained why blaming the website's algorithm won't solve anything.
AI is increasingly common, and the algorithms it uses to "predict" crime and misbehavior are reproducing racial discrimination.
Once you fall down YouTube’s conspiracy theory rabbit hole, its algorithm will continue feeding you disinformation.
A new study out of Cornell University suggests that dating app algorithms don't do us any favors as far as sexual racism goes.
It's easy to blame new tech for negative consequences but really the blame lies with where and how it's used.
Meet a data scientist who is using big data to create the medical systems of the future. Dr. Eric Schadt of the Icahn Institute is creating algorithms that can detect ailments and chart personalized health profiles.

As a society we should require that public information officers be trained so they are literate and indeed fluent in the terminology they may encounter when the public is asking for algorithms.
By now we've all heard about it. Facebook has a fake news problem, a rampant epidemic of phony and outrageous headlines in which a fraction-of-a-penny-per-click gets traded for lies.
There is more than just a passing methodological debate at stake in the question over what went wrong in the predictive models
I have 1,485 Facebook friends, from all over the world. And I don't think any of them have a view I disagree with. I don't see any racist posts, insulting comments or posts in support of Trump, from my Facebook friends.

The tech-savvy (except Peter Thiel) have shown no love for the newly announced Republican candidate throughout the nominating process. I figured it was time to look at Trump's speech in the tech world's own lingo.
Common Core math, for better or worse, is no longer about calculations; it is about reading.
Domesticated animals eat feed. Day after day, the farmer fills the trough with the same oats, the same feed. As we lie in sleep, our sidecars charge, our prostheses: computers, tablets, smartphones. Receptacles for the news feeds, charging to accommodate relentless scrolling throughout the day. Everywhere, silently revving for the coming feeding.
The specific deep learning approach, called convolutional neural networks, learns to separate the content of a painting from
Thus far, algorithms have upended every sector of our society, beginning with transportation (how we tap to hail a "taxi"), consume media (get movie recommendations), love (dating website "matches"), finance (algorithmic traders), and, quite frankly, the list goes on.
Make us happy or sad? Get us to vote for Donald Trump or whomever? There is no doubt that Al-Khwārizmī had different objectives
"The wall between machines and humans, between computer science and biology, is collapsing and I think the next century and probably the future of life itself will be shaped by this algorithmic view of the world."
There is no such thing as neutrality when it comes to media. That has long been a fiction, one that traditional news media needs and insists on.
With so many people on Facebook every day, for so much time, and most of them looking out for news, how news appears on Facebook clearly matters, a lot.
