  • Why you should always question algorithms
    September 14, 2020

    Mashable’s series Algorithms explores the mysterious lines of code that increasingly control our lives — and our futures. When algorithms work for us, they're invisible. We're vaguely aware that we're being served the kind of content we like, but we're too busy enjoying that cat video to even care. Our conscious relationships with these chunks of code are almost always fraught with the kind of frustration reserved for toxic partners. And in one case, legitimately terrifying. …

  • People are fighting algorithms for a more just and equitable future. You can, too.
    September 4, 2020

    Mashable’s series Algorithms explores the mysterious lines of code that increasingly control our lives — and our futures. Algorithms shape our lives, some more gently than others.  From dating apps, to news feeds, to streaming and purchase recommendations, we have become accustomed to a subtle prodding by unseen instruction sets, themselves generated by unnamed humans or opaque machines. But there is another, not so gentle side to the way algorithms affect us. A side where the prodding is more f …
