New Study: Risk «Algorithm» – The significance of algorithmic selection for everyday life

The study, supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation, shows for the population of Switzerland how poorly and unequally distributed risk awareness and skills in handling algorithmic selection applications are. Results indicate both the recklessness of passing on self-generated health data to third parties and the strong desire to control algorithmic selection services such as Google search and Facebook more closely.
