Algorithms are often elegant and incredibly useful tools used to accomplish tasks.
They are mostly invisible aids, augmenting human lives in increasingly incredible ways.Every time someone sorts a column in a spreadsheet, algorithms are at play, and most financial transactions today are accomplished by algorithms.Algorithms help gadgets respond to voice commands, recognize faces, sort photos and build and drive cars.Hacking, cyberattacks and cryptographic code-breaking exploit algorithms.Self-learning and self-programming algorithms are now emerging, so it is possible that in the future algorithms will write many if not most algorithms.However, sometimes the application of algorithms created with good intentions leads to unintended consequences.
