The work of mathematicians in industry is now very close to its tangible
applications; we produce output that is extremely quick and easy to use.
Just look at machinelearned algorithms that compute credit scores. Now
that we sit so close to the applications, we need to consider what sort of
responsibility we have. There are things we are, and aren’t, legally
allowed to do. And there are consequences we might face if we fall foul of
the law. Moreover, given that our work is often cuttingedge, we must
selfregulate to prevent the types of harm that legislators and others
have yet to realise is even possible.
