A couple of years ago I presented a paper at the University of Minneapolis on my ongoing research project on computerized decision models. Although the paper was ostensibly about computer chess, the talk took a conceptual turn, and focused on what I am calling the “politics of the algorithm.”

Since then I have given several different versions of this talk

The chess project will soon be published in the Social Studies of Science. In the meantime, here are the slides from the talk (recently updated), which I am posting as part of experiment in making aspects of my academic research more widely available.
