Some questions are easily answered in an internet search. However, can computers decode human emotions? Hume decisions? Human impulses? In this interdisciplinary book, Brian Christian and cognitive scientist Tim Griffiths explain how to use the theories behind algorithms to navigate certain human interactions. They argue that just like a computer program, life has its own restraints and limits that we all must work inside of. Use this book to strategize your day, or your life, like a computer might.
