More about Algorithmic Wildlife:

As humans increasingly delegate labour to ‘smart’ computer systems, it’s time to reevaluate how we relate to the algorithmic species. Do they engage in ‘smart’ or ‘primitive’ behaviour? How autonomous are they, and what moral grounds have been embedded in them? From obscure high frequency traders to personable writers of prose, Algorithmic Wildlife will not just regard algorithms as alien systems of computation, but as performers, companions, esoteric experiments and curious specimens.
