What should we do or leave undone in a day or a lifetime How much messiness should we accept What balance of the new and familiar is the most fulfilling These may seem like uniquely human quandaries but they are not Computers like us confront limited space and time so computer scientists have been grappling with similar problems for decades And the solutions theyve found have much to teach us In a dazzlingly interdisciplinary work Brian Christian and Tom Griffiths show how algorithms developed for computers also untangle very human questions They explain how to have better hunches and when to leave things to chance how to deal with overwhelming choices and how best to connect with others From finding a spouse to finding a parking spot from organizing ones inbox to peering into the future Algorithms to Live By transforms the wisdom of computer science into strategies for human living
