Organizations & Algorithms
Machine learning algorithms are playing an important role in shaping not only how organizations work but also how we study and design them.
Understanding Organizations using Algorithms
Organizations are multi-actor goal oriented systems. Their behavior is the result of processes that aggregate the behaviors of their constituent actors.
Machine learning (ML) algorithms (supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning) are powerful tools to conceptualize and model these aggregation processes, as well as analyze data about them.
This site describes ongoing research by a network of business school professors who explore such linkages between organizations and algorithms.
