硕 章 Posted over 3 years ago Kevin Slavin: How algorithms shape our world I think that @Bert Govig is 100% right in his comments and that this talk is a "somewhat whimsical and very Entertaining tour of Technology and Design". I really enjoyed watching it, and learned a lot. I also think he used a lot of techniques to give the impression that there was substantially more profound insight in his talk than was actually present. It was a bit like watching a music video... I also have some sympathy with @Dan O's position that there is some danger in putting together really compelling stories like this which are basically entertaining sophistry.
