The ‘enframing’ of the Financial Sector by Technology and Algorithms: from High Frequency Trading to Moral Machines?

Within this lecture I will go into the developments of High Frequency trading within the financial sector. This developments has made it possible that globally connected and autonomous machines are responsible for most of the financial trading within this sector. New ways of thinking about the growing relationships between machines and humans within this sector are necessary, especially about the ethical consequences which are concerned with these new and highly autonomous and interconnected technologies.
