    Our world is increasingly ruled by algorithms, the complex sets of step-by-step instructions that enable computers to sort, filter and select information. But is this always a positive development, and how did we come to believe in the all-conquering power of numbers? Combining journalism and scholarship, Dormehl investigates the role of algorithms in our modern lives and shows how these formulas are shaping human relationships and creativity, notions of identity and even matters of law.
