Algorithms play an increasingly important role in shaping many aspects of our daily lives. What if human-algorithm communication were different? What if we purposely involve humans in the algorithmic decision making pipeline? What if we support human agency and traits in building and sustaining algorithmic data and decision systems? How can the inherent values of human critical thinking and creativity be incorporated into algorithms? How can we reconcile diverse perspectives and points of view about human-algorithm communication? How can we design effective human-machine collaborations for critical analysis?
