Regulate This! Time to subject algorithms to our laws

Remember

one of the oldest rules in computing

Garbage in , garbage out.

You can have the most wonderful algorithms ever, and completely proven to work doing what they are suppossed to be doing. sadly the data entry gets a minus sign in the wrong place, and next thing you know is that mariner 1 does a 180 degree turn at mach 2

But the idea of regulation does raise a concerns. are they qualified to do the job? how long will they take to do the job? how much will it add to the cost? and finally what happens when they f*** up as well?
