There is an algorithm. It starts with instructing the computer to look ...

Yes, actually the training procedure is an algorithm. But every time I read an article or someone talking about the issue they always end up talking about the bias in the data, not in the training. Is the way you select the data an algorithm? I thought it was just about collecting all the possible data and then taking some subsamples with random sampling.

I reckon that this is a broad issue and the definition is vague. In some cases it might fit in some cases it might not fit. But still I don't like calling them biased algorithms because it lets me think about flawed procedures.
