sv podcast – the rise of the algorithm

It’s February, and we join Holly & Darren, lost in a sea of online choices… Are the choices we make really our own or have we been shepherded towards them by ubiquitous AI algorithms? In the context of monetised apps and technology, how do we heed St Paul – no less – by not conforming to the pattern of this world? In a year where there are so many important political decisions to be made (are you terrified about the US Election too??) how do we free ourselves from malign influences? How do we live life in all its fullness when there’s another slightly mediocre cat video to watch?

Do get in touch with us, dear listener, about AI, social media and The Algorithm. It’s a biggie, and we’d love to know what you think!
