With each passing day, we are 
 increasingly living in an algorithmic universe, due to the easy accumulation of big data. In our personal lives, we experience being in a 24/7 world of “filter bubbles,” where Facebook has the ability to customize how liberal or conservative one’s newsfeed is based on prior postings; Google personalizes ads popping up on Gmail based on the content of our conversations; and merchants like Amazon and Pandora feed us personalized recommendations based on our prior purchases and everything we click on.
