It also considers potential applications of algorithms in human life including memory storage and network communication. One such computer science problem is the optimal stopping problem, the mathematical puzzle for determining how long to review options and gather data before settling on the best choice available. The algorithm, based on statistical analysis, shows that there is an optimal place or time to stop researching options or solutions to a problem and instead commit to the next option that's just...

    We live in an age of rapid technological advances where artificial intelligence (AI) is a reality, not a science fiction fantasy. Every day we rely on algorithms to communicate, do our banking online, book a holiday - even introduce us to potential partners. Driverless cars and robots may be the headline makers, but AI is being used for everything from diagnosing illnesses to helping police predict crime hot spots. As machines become more advanced, how does society keep pace when deciding the ethics and regulations governing technology?

Wondering how to find love? Or maybe how to pick an apartment to rent, or choose a cafe to eat at? In this video, you'll learn some interesting ideas from computer science about how we might approach these life challenges. These ideas come from the interesting book 'Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions' by Brian Christian and Tom Griffiths. First, you'll learn about optimal stopping problems and how they apply to dating (amongst other problems). For illustrative purposes, we'll go over one famous formulation of an optimal stopping problem: "the secretary problem". Then, you'll learn about the computer science notion of 'exploration vs exploitation', and how this relates to maximising your enjoyment over time. If you're interested in these sort of ideas, feel free to check out the book for more in-depth info. Full disclaimer: while it was very well-written, I wasn't fully convinced about the practical value of some of the conclusions. However: *I didn't read the book fully*, so make up your own mind. Also, it is definitely good "brain food"... hence me making a video on it. Enjoy :)

We live in an age of rapid technological advances where artificial intelligence (AI) is a reality, not a science fiction fantasy. Every day we rely on algorithms to communicate, do our banking online, book a holiday - even introduce us to potential partners. Driverless cars and robots may be the headline makers, but AI is being used for everything from diagnosing illnesses to helping police predict crime hot spots. As machines become more advanced, how does society keep pace when deciding the ethics and regulations governing technology?

Computer science & human decisions! We're talking about "Algorithms to live by" by Brian Christian and Tom Griffiths! Full blog post at http://bit.ly/2lUdGNu Hello readers! I'm back with another book review. This week we are talking about the Biography of Elon Musk written by Ashlee Vance. -------------------------------------------- Discussion Breakdown: Point #1 |0:24 Summary|1:46 -------------------------------------------- Buy Book Here: http://amzn.to/2nYqyCt -------------------------------------------- Let's talk! Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/noahsachsblog Twitter: https://twitter.com/noahsachsblog Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/noahsachsblog Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/noahsachs SoundCloud: https://www.soundcloud.com/noahsachsblog -------------------------------------------- Brian Christian is an American author and poet, best known for his book The Most Human Human. He competed as a "confederate" in the 2009 Loebner Prize competition, In the words of Tom Griffiths, "My friend Brian Christian and I recently wrote a book together about the parallels between the everyday problems that arise in human lives and the problems faced by computers. Algorithms to Live By outlines practical solutions to those problems as well as a different way to think about rational decision-making." Point #1 Overfitting - It's a term I'd never heard of, then again, I was unfamiliar with many terms in this book! Essentially, Overfitting means over-compensating. Christian and Griffiths explain that people will build whatever the leader is measuring. Now, this can have considerable impact in business. Today's business culture is data-driven and focused on hitting key metrics. We measure ROI, click-through rate, subscribers, likes, shares, it goes on and on! Whatever you, your team, or your company recognize as the "key metric", is what people will focus on. Sounds good right? It allows us to measure how well we are performing assuming we choose appropriate metrics. That's not the full story though. How do we know someone is a top-performer and not simply hitting a specific metric very well. -------------------------------------------- Music: Mesmerize by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1500005 Artist: http://incompetech.com/ I Need to Start Writing Things Down by Chris Zabriskie is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://chriszabriskie.com/darkglow/ Artist: http://chriszabriskie.com/

Examples of Algorithms in Everyday Life: A Surprising Discussion with Brian Christian (Episode 15 of Unlock People's Potential) Show Notes ► https://www.contriber.com/examples-of-algorithms-in-everyday-life/ SUBSCRIBE ► https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsJsUe28xggh2PiGnix98UQ?sub_confirmation=1 In the episode of Unlock People’s Potential, Guerric de Ternay discusses examples of algorithms used in everyday life with guest Brian Christian, co-author of the book Algorithms to Live By. Brian believes that algorithms can be applied to your everyday life, helping you to solve common decision-making problems. For instance, at some point in your life, you will have to find a new apartment — or maybe even want to buy your own house. As a human, you naturally intuit that it makes sense to research and compare different options before choosing a place to live. But in competitive real-estate markets, this can be quite difficult. Not to mention, you only have so much time in your life (no matter where you live). So, how should you go about finding the best place? (Listen to the episode to find out!) The apartment problem is just one of many cool examples that Brian discusses during the podcast! He also addresses questions such as: • What’s an algorithm? • Is there a link between overthinking a problem and that of an algorithm requiring too much computational power? • What role does intuition play in the decision-making process? • How can successful businesses apply the explore/exploit algorithm? • What are the main principles that arise from thinking like an algorithm? • How do you (Brian Christian) apply these concepts in your own life? • And Much More! Listen to the entire podcast here ► https://www.contriber.com/examples-of-algorithms-in-everyday-life/ ► About Brian Christian Brian Christian is the author of The Most Human Human, which was named a Wall Street Journal bestseller and a New Yorker favorite book of 2011. It’s been translated into ten languages. He is the coauthor, with Tom Griffiths, of the recently published book Algorithms to Live By. Christian’s writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Wired, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, The Paris Review, and in scientific journals such as Cognitive Science. Christian has been featured on The Charlie Rose Show and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and has lectured at Google, Microsoft, the Santa Fe Institute, and the London School of Economics.

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 EditorsChoice, 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.

Friday lunchtime lectures are for everyone and are free to attend. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk. Code is all about pattern. Beyond computer programming, this means code can also be well-suited to creating musical patterns – not only in recordings, but also during live performances. In this lecture, algorage pioneer and ODI Sound Artist in Residence Alex McLean will talk about live coding of music and how it’s development over the past 16 years. He will relate this history to the open data movement, describing how live coders have opened up and shared the underlying structures of their music as free or open source software. Alex will wrap up with some thoughts and predictions around where he thinks live coding is going, both in terms of creative practice and its wider cultural influences. Alex McLean is a live coding musician and software artist based in Sheffield UK. He’s been making people dance to code since 2001 through a range of musical collaborations, including with Slub, Canute, xynaaxmue and aalleexx. He releases his “polyrhythmic and hyperreal strand of techno” (bleep.com) on Sheffield label Computer Club, in particular Peak Cut EP (2015) and his forthcoming album Spicule. Alex co-founded the Algorave and TOPLAP live coding movements, and the AlgoMech festival of algorithmic and mechanical movement, the first edition of which takes place 12-20 November 2016 in Sheffield. Alex works as a generalist as a member of FoAM Kernow. During 2016 he is Sound Artist in Residence at ODI HQ, supported by the Sound and Music national organisation for new music.

The book is a fascinating read. It brings to life many famous computer science algorithms and talks about how they can be applied to decisions in day to day life which have nothing to do with computer science. Once you read it, you will never look at simple things like making a choice of the apartment to rent the same way as before!

What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favorites is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, 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 us. In a dazzlingly interdisciplinary work, acclaimed author Brian Christian and cognitive scientist Tom Griffiths show how the algorithms developed for computers can 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 one's inbox to understanding the workings of memory, Algorithms to Live By transforms the wisdom of computer science into strategies for human living.
