Abstract : Our society is increasingly relying on algorithms in all aspects of its operation. We trust algorithms not only to help carry out routine tasks, such as accounting and automatic manufacturing, but also to make decisions on our behalf. The sorts of decisions with which we now casually entrust algorithms range from unsettling (killer drones), to tedious (automatic trading), or deeply personal (online dating). Computer technology has tremendous power, and with that power comes immense responsibility. Nowhere is the need to control the power and to judiciously use technology more apparent than in massive data analysis, known as big data.
