Hannah Fry takes us on a tour of the good, the bad and the downright ugly of the algorithms that surround us. Are they really an improvement on the humans they are replacing?

Hannah Fry is a lecturer in the Mathematics of Cities at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at UCL. She is also a well-respected broadcaster and the author of several books including the recently published 'Hello World: How to be Human in the Age of the Machine.'
