Should algorithms rule the world? Maybe they do so already and we just never noticed. Will they in fact do a better job than mere humans?

How do governments use them to create legislation? What are the ethical implications of the algorithm use for policy-makers?

We invited Jonnie Penn, Google Technology Policy fellow, and Dawn Duhaney, Partnerships Manager at UK Wellcome Trust to be our guests and help us resolve this dilemma on our podcast Pocket Dilemmas.

As usual, the hosts of the Pocket Dilemmas podcast are Jonathan Charles and Kerrie Law.
