From the introduction:
It is rare that we have two issues on the same subject in close succession; this issue, which closely follows our spring 2019 issue also focused on algorithms is an exception. The most substantive difference between the two issues is that the first explored both positive and negative effects of the increasing widespread use of algorithms, while the second focuses on the many untoward and perhaps unforeseen ways in which algorithms are changing our lives and who we think we are.

We, the undersigned, are compelled to express our outrage at the arrest and conviction of the Iranian Professor Ahmadreza Djalali, who has been detained since April 2016, by the Islamic Republic of Iran. He was accused of espionage, and following a closed trial, he was sentenced to death on October 20, 2017.
