"Algorithmic regime and generative strategies" examines the cultural and social impact of ubiquitous algorithmic systems. The continuation of the series of events on the regulatory politics of code and machines brings to Vienna two researchers and artists that investigate these issues since the mid-90s. Matthew Fuller and Graham Harwood from the Centre for Cultural Studies Goldsmiths University London call for a better understanding of digital systems in culture, politics and everyday life and demonstrate that the idea of neutral objectivity in connection with algorithms is misleading:

"... if it is not to idealise forms of effective procedure – like some kind of mathematical angels - as having primary agency. Understanding the wider ecology in which algorithms operate is essential in being able to distinguish those cases where particular kinds of powers are held and enacted by algorithms."
