How algorithms shape our world

In this Ted talk, Kevin Slavin argues that we’re living in a world designed for — and increasingly controlled by – algorithms. In this heart throbbing  talk that was delivered at Ted Global , he uses a systematically designed algorithms as an example to shows how these complex computer programs have changed the dimensions in which we use to determine espionage tactics, stock prices, movie scripts, and architecture. He also warns that nowadays we are writing codes that we no longer understand the dimensions due to loping of algorithms. He states that a good example of this is the 2008 stock meltdown when systems in stock market crashed.
