ALGORITHMS TO LIVE BY The Computer Science of Human Decisions

by | Read by Brian Christian

Contemporary Culture • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Christian and Griffiths argue that even in our connected lives we are always a few steps behind the information necessary to make the best decisions or follow the best strategy. Using everyday examples, such as selecting a new apartment and choosing a dating companion, they advocate for an approach similar to computer algorithms. Christian provides a serviceable, if geeky, and youthful-sounding narration that is somewhat engaging. To be sure, this audiobook is primarily for those literate in the areas of probability theory, decision-making logic, and related schemes. It's a highly theoretical examination of the parameters of the human mind facing time and resource constraints. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
