  1. Algorithms to Live By (Brian Christian at Designers + Geeks)

    Our site: https://designersandgeeks.com ————- Finding an apartment (or a partner), deciding whether to eat at our favorite restaurant or try something new, managing our messy desks and scheduling our time: we think of these as uniquely human problems. They’re not. Deep, fundamental parallels exist between these dilemmas and some of the canonical problems in computer science—which gives us an opportunity to learn something about how to make better decisions in our own lives.

    Brian Christian is the coauthor, with Tom Griffiths, of Algorithms to Live By, a #1 bestseller, and the author of The Most Human Human, a New York Times Editors’ Choice, Wall Street Journal bestseller, and New Yorker favorite book of the year. Christian’s writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Wired, The Wall Street Journal, The Paris Review, and in scientific journals such as Cognitive Science, and has been translated into eleven languages. He has appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Charlie Rose Show, and Radiolab, and has lectured at Google, Facebook, Microsoft, the Santa Fe Institute, and the London School of Economics. He lives in San Francisco.
