Mechanisms in a digitalized world

Abstract : Due to computing and communication facilities, formal procedures, often referred to as 'al-gorithms', are now extensively used in public, economic and social areas. These procedures, currently at the forefront of criticisms, share some features with mechanisms as defined by economists, following Hurwicz. My aim is to investigate these relationships and to discuss the risks due to the power of algorithms.
