About

It all started with industrial revolution – steam machine and conveyor belt – the progressive shortening of time, space and possibility of reaction – in digital age it came to the scale of atoms and picoseconds – optical cables literally transfer information with a speed of light. The time of anthropomorphic technology is long gone. Algorithms, these immaterial machines with physical consequences are running our lives without us being aware of it or having a possibility to react. Even their architects – mathematicians, programmers and engineers, have no control over them after they make it. In the world of Big data – innumerable parameters and unpredictable actors – the results often tend to fail. They set it up, give it a possibility to interact with numerous other elements (machines and algorithms) but no one knows what these things really do and what the repercussions are.
