    Algorithms Reaching into Society, our Bodies and our Brain

    Just a few years ago, who would have thought that algorithms would be regularly making important decisions once made by humans, and they would be so complex that we would not be able to fully understand how they made their decisions (even though we rely on their decisions in life-threatening situations). And further, that algorithms […]

    Artificial Intelligence and Consumer Protection

    AI-based applications raise new, so far unresolved legal questions, and consumer law is no exception. The use of self-learning algorithms in Big Data analysis gives companies the opportunity to gain a detailed, individual insight into the customer’s personal circumstances, behavior patterns and personality. On this basis, companies can tailor their advertising, but also their prices […]

    Living in the Algorithmic Age

    Algorithms are sometimes compared to cathedrals, in that they share the same ambition, and the same folly. Some algorithms, such as telephone operating systems, data management systems, or search engines, are huge objects involving the contributions of thousands of people. With algorithms, Homo sapiens has finally created a tool equal to its aspirations. Why do […]

    Esther Szekeres on triangle inequalities

    Esther Klein (later Esther Szekeres) famously observed that five points in the plane with no three in line must contain the vertices of a convex quadrilateral. Similarly, nine points in the plane with no three in line must contain the vertices of a convex pentagon, and more generally for every n there exists a larger […]
