Algorithms and Control.

Algorithms and Control: Behaviour of computational programs in arts, media theory & political activism.


By Robert Jackson.

Algorithms have become a hot topic of political lament in the last few years. Such "step - by - step" procedures, the common logic which underlies the behaviour of computational programs are now a key area of research both in the arts, media theory and political activism. Robert Jackson argues that more can be done to prise apart how contradictory algorithms are, and thus the contradictory levels of control.
