Introduction: the Governance of Algorithms

Philosophy and Technology:1-7 (forthcoming)
Marcello D'Agostino
Università degli Studi di Milano
In our information societies, tasks and decisions are increasingly outsourced to automated systems, machines, and artificial agents that mediate human relationships, by taking decisions and acting on the basis of algorithms. This raises a critical issue: how are algorithmic procedures and applications to be appraised and governed? This question needs to be investigated, if one wishes to avoid the traps of ICTs ending up in isolating humans behind their screens and digital delegates, or harnessing them in a passive role, by curtailing their freedom and autonomy.
