While algorithms play an increasingly integral role in our day-to-day lives, there still seems to exist a great deal of misunderstanding and even mistrust regarding what algorithms are and what they do. To help dispel some of the mystery, joining me is Gah-Yi Ban, professor of Management Science and Operations at London Business School. Her research interests include Big Data analytics; in particular algorithmic decision-making involving complex, often highly uncertain data. Her recent TEDx Talk, “The power and perils of algorithms,” delves into the fundamental truths of algorithms to help everyone, even those who are not algorithmic experts, better understand the role algorithms play in our daily lives.
