The Constitution of Algorithms: Ground-Truthing Programming Formulating

The Constitution of Algorithms: Ground-Truthing Programming Formulating PDF

A laboratory study that investigates how algorithms come into existence.

Algorithms–often associated with the terms big data, machine learning, or artificial intelligence–underlie the technologies we use every day, and disputes over the consequences, actual or potential, of new algorithms arise regularly. In this book, Florian Jaton offers a new way to study computerized methods, providing an account of where algorithms come from and how they are constituted, investigating the practical activities by which algorithms are progressively assembled rather than what they may suggest or require once they are assembled.
