You’d be surprised how often you interact with algorithms. It’s not just for social media. Use your GPS to get to work? Took money out this week from an ATM? All these scenarios involve an interaction with an algorithm.

This interview was inspired by Macquarie University’s publication The Lighthouse and their article ‘How an Algorithm is Like and Omelette‘.
