Description

A bipartisan group of House lawmakers in the US has introduced a bill that would require online platforms to let users opt-out of having personal data-driven algorithms select the content they see. The move could spell a significant change in how our news feeds are shaped. Rohan Seth talks to Prateek Waghre to discuss the fine print.
