This video popped into my head when I was reading the contents of my previous blog post ‘How algorithms rule the world’.
I drew comparison between the idea of allocating police resources based on the output of algorithms and the actions of the on-board computer in the above video.
Both sources suggest that algorithms can be used to predict future behaviors based on past behaviors, probability and recent trends.
The video also links the cyyberpunk themes (covered in Block 1) to algorithmic theme that we are currently studying.
