Abstract: Emergency and Algorithm: Tools for Computations or for Control?

In recent times, the term “algorithm” has gradually taken on a meaning further away from its original one. And as often happens, with the change in meaning there has also been a change in the application and use of tools that use algorithms. In these brief considerations, which do not claim to be complete or excessively technical, we will analyze the contexts that led to this change in the meaning of the term “algorithm” and the consequences on many aspects of everyday life of the application of techniques. of Artificial Intelligence, particularly evident in this emergency phase marked by the Covid-19 pandemic.
