Coded World

Episodic Information

Algorithms are everywhere today, infiltrating every aspect of our lives, and using big data to change how we live on a daily basis. And this is just the beginning of the algorithmic age. Algorithms are the building blocks for almost all advanced technology today, from Amazon shopping recommendations to the most sophisticated artificial intelligence. Anjan Sundaram – author, journalist and mathematician – travels the world to meet with people designing this code, and people affected by this algorithmic revolution. We see how this code is making and taking away our choices, affecting the fate of nations and the freedom of individuals, being used to create virtual beings, communities and worlds, and ultimately changing who we are and what we will become in tomorrow’s world.
