    Inhaltsangabe

    Random House presents the audiobook edition of Hello World by Hannah Fry. 

    You are accused of a crime. Who would you rather determined your fate - a human or an algorithm?

    An algorithm is more consistent and less prone to error of judgment. Yet a human can look you in the eye before passing sentence. 

    You need a liver transplant to save your life. Who would you want in charge of organ allocation?

    An algorithm can match organ donors with patients, potentially saving many more lives. But it may send you to the back of the queue. 

    You’re buying a (driverless) car. One vehicle is programmed to save as many lives as possible in a collision. Another promises to prioritise the lives of its passengers. Which do you choose? 

    Welcome to the age of the algorithm, the story of a not-too-distant future where machines rule supreme, making important decisions - in health care, transport, finance, security, what we watch, where we go, even whom we send to prison. So how much should we rely on them? What kind of future do we want?

    Hannah Fry takes us on a tour of the good, the bad and the downright ugly of the algorithms that surround us. In Hello World she lifts the lid on their inner workings, demonstrates their power, exposes their limitations and examines whether they really are an improvement on the humans they are replacing.

    The power of Algorithms and its limitations.

    Absolutely fantastic, inspiring, logical and intriguing stroy line. Beautifully presented important implications of Algorithms and its limitations in every aspect of human life.
    From algorithms aiding in logical jail sentence to helping cops in finding crime hotspots in city.
    from helping surgeons detecting cancer to level 6 driver less cars ,All with its downsides which you might forget to consider..
    I loved it !!

    Very good book

    Very careful examination of the issues, I was impressed how she could look at any issue at question from at least two sides.
    Very interesting and recommendable

    A very important statement,

    When it comes to artificial intelligence loud statements about the super powers (marketing) and the apocalypse on the other hand dominate the news. Hannah Fry managed a well balanced view about risks and chances instead and shows a way how algorithms can still serve us humans for the best - knowing that the development cannot be stopped but has to guided in the right direction. This book is one important step for this. It it definitly one of the best readings about this topics and I can also recommend the audiobook here at Audible. Thanks Hannah for sharing your ideas!

    Mensch und\oder Maschine

    Der Schwerpunkt dieses Buches liegt nicht in einem Informatik Kurs wie man Programme schreibt oder einer theoretischen Beschreibung von Software sondern ist eine Beschreibung was Programme können und wo sie eingesetzt werden. Und Programme können so viel das man es kaum glauben kann. Die Autorin diskutiert verschiedene Anwendungen von Justiz über Krebsdiagnosen über selbstfahrende Autos, verbrechensfahndung, Prognosen von Filmerfolg bis zu dieser zutiefst menschlichen Sphäre von Kunst und Musik. Die schildert auch einige Katastrophen und es geht sehr um die ethische Bewertung von Programmen. Sie schreibt klar und argumentiert nachvollziehbar. Was am ehesten ihr Konklusio ist: Man soll sich von Maschinen nicht das Denken abnehmen lassen sondern eher umgekehrt. Mit hat das Buch gut gefallen.

    Inspiring book

    Read this book, enjoy it and think about it. A wonderful read which shows that for now the danger lies not in almighty machines but in humans overestimating them.

    Really interesting

    Everyone should read this. We are so dependent on algorithms in our modern world so we should know more about them
