How we can make the digital world into a better one

Algorithms are omnipresent: they make medical diagnoses, sort out job applications, help track down criminals and suggest the punishments judges should hand out. Artificial intelligence has nothing to do with science fiction – it is already automating daily decisions that have a significant influence on the lives of millions of people.

The resulting social changes will be radical, which is why this book is a wake-up call. Using a host of examples from everyday life it points to the extent to which the algorithmic revolution will change society, the opportunities it presents and the risks involved. The book is intended as an encouragement to use digitalisation for participation and against discrimination. It makes specific suggestions about what must happen now so that we can move forward into a good future.
