A fascinating exploration of how insights from computer algorithms can be applied to our everyday lives helping to solve common decision making problems and illuminate the workings of the human mindAll 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 act I enjoy thinking about algorithms as they are applied to technical problems So when I saw this book I thought This is a book written just for me And that assessment was absolutely Disciplina Positiva Para Preescolares (NIÑOS: EDUCACIÓN Y CUIDADOS) insights from computer algorithms can be applied to our everyday lives helping to solve common decision making problems and The Ronin illuminate the workings of the human mindAll 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 Rockonomics in a day or a lifetime How much messiness should we accept What balance of new act I enjoy thinking about algorithms as they are applied to technical problems So when I saw this book I thought This Pathfinder Chronicles is a book written just for me And that assessment was absolutely

Rithms used by computers can also untangle very human uestions 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 one's inbox to understanding the workings of memory Algorithms to Live By transforms the wisdom of computer science into strategies for human living I really enjoyed this book It s a nice popular review of research in a style similar to Malcolm Gladwell It was fascinating to see the wide reaching applications of classic algori

    This is one of those books that you pick up in the hope that it lives up to its title but is likely not to because it was written by someone from marketing Every now and then it pays off and this is one of those timesThis book spoke v

    I was captivated by much of this book It's the perfect antidote to the argument you often hear from young maths students 'What's the point I'll never use this in real life' This often comes up with algebra which often is useful but reflects the way that we rarely cover the most applicable bits of maths to everyday life at high sch

    I enjoy thinking about algorithms as they are applied to technical problems So when I saw this book I thought This is a book written just for me And that assessment was absolutely correct It is a fascinating book all about how sophisticated algorithms are applicable to everyday problemsThe book starts out describing the optimal stopping problem It is also sometimes called the secretary hiring problem and I have seen i

    Okay I loved this book So what is it aboutThe big pictureWe encounter many problems in our daily life for instance should I park my car here or proceed with the hope of finding a free spot a bit further Should I try new restaurants or just stick to good old ones I know How can I find my life's purpose What is the fastest way I can sort out my books hmmm should I even try sorting out my shelves How can I best schedule my tasks for maximum pr

    Even though I'm a computer programmer I have to say when I saw the title I was a bit put off Algorithms are what I use for telling a computer what to do but I'm not sure I feel comfortable with using them to tell myself what to do Real life is less tidy and binary than the data in a computerBut perhaps out of train wreck c

    A simple algorithm to conceive of literary plots could be to slot them as belonging to one of these categories Man vs Nature Man vs Self Man vs Man Man vs Society Brian Tom enlists findings from computer science to guide us through these Algorithms here are the shortcuts or even the intuitions that guide us through problems that are intractable at first glance We apparently use them everyday Brian Tom are here to document this and to show h

    I really enjoyed this book It's a nice popular review of research in a style similar to Malcolm Gladwell It was fascinating to see the wide reaching applications of classic algorithms from computer science and also humbling to see how many problems are essentially impossible to truly optimize However as luck would have it there are often simple approximations that give a pretty good solution with very little effort The

    An engaging conceptual tour of computationalnetworking concepts how they apply in the computer world and how we can use them to reframe streamline and manage a diverse array of real life problems both silly and serious As a reader who knows little about computer science but loves learning new frameworks drawing analogies between disparate fields and finding metaphors for life everywhere I thoroughly enjoyed this Some of my favor

    In this book the authors explain famous algorithms in real world context My notes from this book 1 Optimal Stopping2 Old people don't lose memory they have so much of it that it slows their system3 Procrastination can be seen as an efficient scheduling problem with wrong priority4 Predictive Models Gaussian Power Law Erlang5 Over fitting It really is true that a company will build whatever the CEO decides to measure6 Penalize comp

    So many great one liners in this bookStop on Tinder at 37%Use thick markers in brainstormingAll things being eual it'll last as long as it's lastedBut lest you think this is another fluffy brain book it's actually hard computer programming with the occasional laugh out loud line The team behind it are serious academics who have thought deep
