RELEVANCE OF SUBJECT: Algorithms and the way humans interact with technology will only grow as a subject of interest in the future. The breadth and depth of knowledge Hosanagar brings to this book will make it a standard resource for how to think about the future of decision making technology.
“[Hosanagar’s] ’predictability-resilience paradox’ is conveyed convincingly. He excels in arguing for an algorithmic bill of rights, one based on the original ideal of self-regulation by government and by individuals…Algorthimic decision making and its influence in our lives requires our attention and study.”
“Especially relevant to current political hot topics, Hosanagar’s outstanding introduction to algorithms will appeal to and inform readers interested in learning more about the systems that determine what they’re exposed to online.”
“Hosanagar deserves credit for valiantly attempting, throughout this thoughtful treatise, to widen understanding of a technology central to modern society.”
“The most useful part of the book is Hosanagar’s ’algorithmic bill of rights,’ which would give consumers insight into the AI that surrounds them, if not some measure of control.”
“As we negotiate the uneasy interactions between man and the intelligent machine, Kartik Hosanagar’s important and very timely book, helps us to understand a world increasingly dominated by often opaque algorithms that take more and more decisions in our lives. His proposal for an Algorithmic Bill of Rights needs to be acted on at the earliest!”
—Nandan Nilekani, Co-founder and Chairman of Infosys
“AI is finally here, from guiding us home on Waze, to helping us choose a restaurant, a book or a job. I believe this will launch a Renaissance of human creativity as mundane tasks become handled by AI. Kartik Hosanagar’s excellent book identifies the growing pains we may experience along the way to this new human advancement.”
—Tim Draper, founding partner of venture capital firm DFJ
“Algorithms and artificial intelligence are overturning the rules of society, but their true impact is still in its infancy. Hosanagar’s book is the best guide yet to understanding these digital forces reshaping our lives. Rigorous yet readable, filled with insight and perspective from one of our smartest thinkers about technology.”
