Algorithms are computer code written by people, and humans can unknowingly introduce bias into their programming. These algorithms determine the results in your Google searches, shopping results and even in library databases. Results are ordered by “relevance” according to the rules set by these algorithms. Algorithms determine who should get hired, our ability to get a mortgage, and what type of political news we see on our social media feed.  Learn how they affect your decisions and how you can combat their influence.
