Machines that learn to think for themselves are revolutionising the workplace. But there’s growing evidence they are acquiring racial and class prejudices too.  Human bank employees are no longer allowed to use common sense to over-rule the robots. Not only are they being used to decide our access to insurance, loans and whether or not we are a decent credit risk, but they may also be influencing our employment prospects, medical treatment and tax affairs. Even more ominously, as I shall explain, such robots may soon be ruling on whether police patrol your area, and if you are a potential criminal.
