What Even IS an Algorithm? | Crash Course: Data for Black Lives | Episode 1, Season 1

What even is an algorithm? Algorithms seem to have this vice grip on our lives. However, most of us don’t even know exactly what an algorithm is or does. Here at Data for Black Lives, we aim to fight algorithmic injustice, and in order to do that, we need to fully understand what we’re up against. In this episode of Crash Course: Data for Black Lives, we’re unpacking what an algorithm actually is and how they can contribute to injustice or be used as a tool for activism.
