Can we create a working leadership algorithm?
I hope not.
For the moment, the end of leadership by humans sounds like some form of dystopian science-fiction plot complete with profound existential implications for the race.

As researchers gain more insight on the algorithms that drive our brains, and those in the world of machine learning continue to push the boundaries of artificial (when does it become not artificial?) intelligence, a “machine” mastering the behaviors we associate with leaders, is not implausible.
Perhaps we should raise our game as a bit of insurance.

Empathy. Love. Help. Kindness. Curiosity. Caring.
Those are the difficult ones to reduce to an algorithm.
