There is no better guide to the strategies and stakes of this battle for the future"), Noah has gotten more involved in public writing/speaking and policy discussions concerning data-driven algorithms and their role in society. He's appeared on cable TV and BBC radio, written for Washington Post, Scientific American, TIME, Barron's, Boston Globe, Wired, Slate, Ms. Magazine, and Fast Company, and been quoted in a range of newspapers.
