CosmoCaixa. C/ Isaac Newton, 26. Barcelona
Our daily life is completely enveloped and conditioned by activities that are only possible thanks to algorithms. The appliances we use to make breakfast, the current economic/financial situation and the weather report in the newspaper, the phones and devices we use to communicate, the therapeutic and diagnostic equipment healthcare professionals use to heal us, the search engines we use online, the alarms and cameras that watch over us and keep us safe, the most sophisticated espionage tools, the complex machinery used to design and construct buildings, planes, roads, and all research activity, require algorithms to generate new knowledge and new technology. In short, our knowledge-based economic model is nourished by and needs the development of algorithms.
With this series, B·Debate and the "la Caixa" Foundation invite you to learn the secrets and potential of these very human tools.
