Understanding the consequences of machine learning algorithms for contemporary societies
Rapid advancements in machine learning technologies are transforming social and political life in ways that uniquely challenge how we live in relation to others. The life chances of a person are now intimately connected to the attributes that an algorithm has learned from the data patterns of unknown others. The EU-funded ALGOSOC project is developing a new approach to understanding and responding to the consequences of machine learning algorithms for contemporary societies. The project will examine how 21st century machine learning algorithms are learning to recognise, attribute and infer the characteristics of entities, more specifically people, groups and objects.
