Hannah Fry

All About Algorithms

If you, like us, form part of the techno-perplexed, Hannah Fry is here to help. Join us as she launches the first Technocurious event to shed light on the myriad ways that technology (and algorithms) are transforming our lives. From driverless cars to criminal justice to data and medicine, we'll hear stories of what it all means (and what we need to be thinking about).

Hannah Fry is an Associate Professor in the mathematics of cities from University College London. In her day job she uses mathematical models to study patterns in human behaviour, and has worked with governments, police forces, health analysts and supermarkets. Her TED talks have amassed millions of views and she has fronted television documentaries for the BBC and PBS; she also hosts the long-running science podcast, ‘The Curious Cases of Rutherford & Fry’ with the BBC. Her new book Hello World has been shortlisted for the Royal Society prize.
