Algorithms to Live By
- The Computer Science of Human Decisions
- Autor: Brian Christian, Tom Griffiths
- Sprecher: Brian Christian
- Spieldauer: 11 Std. und 50 Min.
All our lives are constrained by limited space and time, limits that give rise to a particular set of problems. What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favorites is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, but they are not: computers, too, face the same constraints, so computer scientists have been grappling with their version of such problems for decades.
A must read for both CS and non-CS people alike

Great for anyone interested in computer science

I can warmly recommend it for anyone interested in computer science and/or statistics.
Topics of everyday life are viewed and discussed from an algorithmic perspective, always trying to be most efficient while keeping in mind restrictions and model assumptions.
It adds a very nice flavor that Brian Christian himself narrates the book. I definetely liked his voice and style of reading.
Overall I would definetely recommend this book.
