Design Backstory

We must remember that algorithms used in all apps are developed by people within a societal environment. The algorithms are not independently and coldly calculating optimum outcomes with complete and unbiased data nor are they necessarily transparent. The AI we frequently are exposed to within cloud based apps are what Bill Thompson of the BBC’s Digital Planet podcast refers to as “applied statistics” and constrained machine learning rather than what we would generally relate to as general purpose intelligence.

Lets remember too that the caveats about algorithms written by Cathy O'Neil in her book  “Weapons of Math Destruction” and many other articles and books are still relevant today. We are watching with interest the evolution of an overarching framework to govern the future of what Professor Genevieve Bell of ANU’s 3Ai terms the cyber physical society along with numerous other similar research institutes across the globe.

SO, lets not worship nor follow blindly and passively algorithms – they are great tools but lousy masters and even worse deities!
