From your social media accounts to your bank account, algorithms are constantly making decisions about you. Every two weeks, Automated Society delves into the unreported ways automated systems affect society and the world around you.

Have you ever made a call in an emergency, and wondered if you're speaking to a robot? Are you certain that the algorithm that decided on your insurance premium did not misinterpret your last name as a risk factor? Automated decisions impact our lives, but sometimes we don’t even know we’ve agreed to the terms of service.

Automated Society tells the weird, outrageous and mundane everyday stories of how automated decision-making is being experienced. We want to foster conversations with readers about the invisible algorithms in their lives and for policy-makers to know what their policies are doing.
