A Human's Guide to Machine Intelligence

Whether or not we realize it, algorithms have taken over a big part of our lives. This technology is embedded in every major tech platform and web-enabled device we come in contact with, and influences the everyday decisions we make: what we buy, where we eat, whom we date, how we work, and more. Host Dan Loney talks with Kartik Hosanagar, Professor of Technology and Digital Business, and Marketing, at the Wharton School, to discuss his new book, A Human’s Guide to Machine Intelligence: How Algorithms Are Shaping Our Lives and How We Can Stay In Control. Kartik's research demonstrates that instead of surrendering ourselves to this world of algorithmic decision-making, we need to arm ourselves with a better, deeper and a more nuanced understanding of it.
