We need a new Bill of Rights to protect us from algorithms, Wharton professor says

Algorithmic power corrupts algorithmically.

Who should get a job interview? Who should get approved for a loan? Who should get matched up on a dating app? We cede these decisions to imperfect, sometimes biased chunks of code — often with no way to check an algorithm’s work, let alone its power.

In fact, the best algorithms are sufficiently sophisticated that programmers can’t always tell for certain how and why they reach the conclusions they do, Wharton professor Kartik Hosanagar writes in his important new book “A Human’s Guide to Machine Intelligence.” “A.I. scientists often have no way to know what’s going on under the hood,” he says.
