This chapter discusses how technologies, ideologies, and systems of governance that govern individuals and societies are being transformed by software. It emphasizes that a new mode of governance, termed automated management, is being introduced and applied through software. The use of coding helps to improve the power of traditional surveillance and to create advanced automated capture systems, which are equipped with software algorithms that work automatically and independently. The chapter begins with a discussion of the emergence of automated management and focuses on the advances in sensing and scanning technologies, default recording of capta, and the discursive regime of automated management. It also discusses the factors that make automated management a reality.
