Product Description

A fascinating exploration of how computer algorithms can be applied to our everyday lives. What should we do or leave undone in a day or a lifetime? Exploring how insights from computer algorithms can be used in our daily lives, ‘Algorithms To Live By’ helps to solve common decision-making problems and illuminate the workings of the human mind. When should you switch between different tasks, and how many lessons should you take on in the first place? How much messiness should you accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favourites is the most fulfilling? When computers face time and space constraints, they too must untangle very human questions: how to have better hunches, when to leave things to chance, how to deal with overwhelming choices and how best to connect with others.
