We saw many interventions in this week’s material that were mostly critical toward algorithms and the (legitimate) threat they can represent for human freedom in general.

But can we create (using government’s funding for example) algorithm that can outsmart these negative algorithms we saw. The idea would be to detect fake news by their lack of reliable sources and the analysis of their evolution on the internet, the sources they come from, the type of network they use, and use that metadata of articles to denounce them as fake news. It could be a cool thing to use the technology of the algorithm to regulate itself, I think.

My question in the end is this one : “is it possible to implement lines inside articles to prevent their negative consequences as we do in the Law by adding articles to prevent laws to create unfairness, algorithm creation would then be a combination of line coding and legal and ethical reflection.”
