What started on Wall Street - a takeover at the hands of emotionless algorithms - has now spread to all corners of our lives. Music that sounds as if it could have been written by Bach was, in fact, composed by an algorithm. The best analysis at the CIA doesn’t come from experienced agents, but from an algorithm. The best mind reader in the world isn’t a psychiatrist or a psychologist, but a set of five million algorithms that knows what you’re thinking and what you’ll do in almost any situation. How did we get here?
