favorites is the most fulfilling These may seem like uniuely human uandaries but they are not computers too face the same constraints so computer scientists have been grappling with their version of such issues for decades And the solutions they've found have much to teach usIn a dazzlingly interdisciplinary work acclaimed author Brian Christian and cognitive scientist Tom Griffiths show how the algo 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 how exactly we can make them efficient by exploring the idea of human algorithm design searching for better solutions to the challenges people encounter every day The central thesis is that it s best to use shortcuts to improve your probability of success and remember that perfection is the enemy of the good The book s algorithms are intended to reduce time spent puzzling conserve energy for the things that matterWhen it comes to the first two categories computer science is shown to be a good guide to problems created by the fundamental structure of the world and by our limited capacities for processing information As with all the sciences before it computer science and data science are pretty effective in dealing with these issues And the computational approach seems to be a remarkably useful improvement in dealing with areas like self control or complex everyday decisionsIn this part of the book when we deal with Man vs Nature Man vs Self we mostly encounter well defined problems and potential algorithms to deal with them We have a nice variety of approaches hereFirst we are given a taste of the Optimal stopping problems which spring from the irreversibility and irrevocability of time How do you decide when to stop searching be it for a the perfect mate the perfect employee the perfect job or the perfect weekend movie The answer seems to be simple 37% you stop once 37% of your options have been checked out Much useful than it sounds this number is the output of an algorithm Whether it s an apartment a parking space or a spouse the right moment to stop searching and start choosing falls under the umbrella of problems called optimal stopping The general solution to optimal stopping problems reveals that you should spend 37 percent of your time gaining an impression of what s out there and the rest of the time selecting anything better than the average of what you observed thus far Need to rent an apartment in three weeks Simply take one week to observe and two weeks to pounce on the next best thing This means that you have a good sample of the options you have so you don t jump to early decision and miss out on the good choices that were just around the corner and at the same time you don t waste all your time only searching Then we are introduced to the exploreexploit dilemma springing from time s limited supply should we revisit favourite restaurants and places and ensure a good time exploit or should we explore bravely out to new experiences and places explore in the hope that we might stumble on something incredible If we don t explore we might miss out on a lot of YOLO stuff but if we only explore and do not exploit the good stuff we have already discovered a favourite dish a cared for home spouse close friends etc then we might me missing out on even SO how do we figure out an optimal ration between ExploreExploit Turns out computer scientists have been working on finding this balance for than fifty years They even have a name for it the exploreexploit tradeoff The exploreexploit tradeoff tells us how to find the balance between trying new things and enjoying our favourites The answer is to think about the time you have left the time you have the your strategy should shift So the young should explore and the elderly should exploit and wherever you are in that continuum you should ration the Es accordingly YOLO after allThere are Relaxation and randomization emerge as vital and necessary strategies for dealing with the ineluctable complexity of challenges like trip planning and vaccinations Sorting theory tells us how and whether to arrange our offices Caching theory tells us how to fill our closets Scheduling theory tells us how to fill the unforgiving minute well etcThen comes the next two categories Man vs Man and Man vs Society problems these are in effect the problems that we pose and cause each other Here the authors move away from computer science and enlists mathematics as well specifically and predictably game theory to help us out And the cross pollination between game theory and computer science gives us algorithmic game theory for tackling issues like investing bubble and even plain arguments The solutions are much less rigorous here with 1 the advice to change the game if the game threatens to go into less than optimal euilibriums and 2 an exhortation to be computationally kind to reduce the cognitive load of the participants emerging as the main algorithms to live by when it comes to living in society So as always the book would seem to be teaching us again that no matter how computationally adept we are dealing with each other is something that just can t be fitted into any algorithm formula or thumb rule We gotta wing it Anđelova šala of such issues for decades And the solutions they've found have much to teach usIn a dazzlingly interdisciplinary work acclaimed author Brian Christian and
