Eliminating Bias in Algorithms Artificial intelligence is basically the execution of algorithms or formulas that tell a program what to do, when to do it, and how to do it.

At a more advanced level, it can navigate you to your destination, tell you the speed limit, and what time you will arrive. It will process highly complex strings of directions containing hundreds of rules and steps. Some algorithms are written by humans but more and more they are generated by the software itself. These are called Learner algorithms and this is where problems arise.
