The development of Internet technology has allowed algorithms to gradually deepen their influence on our lives, and have been alienated into the power that can mobilize various factors of production, and targeted governance is imperative. This paper starts from the necessity of power alienation, analyzes the key factors, draws on mature experience, and puts forward feasible suggestions for the current situation.
