Algorithms to Live By with Brian Christian

When you are deciding who to marry, you are using an algorithm. The same is true when you are looking for a parking space, playing a game of poker, or deciding whether or not to organize your closet. Algorithms To Live By is a book about the computer science of human decisions. It offers strategies for how to think through everyday life like a computer scientist.

Brian Christian has a background in computer science and philosophy, and is an author of Algorithms to Live By. He joins the show to explain how the same algorithms and data structures we use for our computer programs can be applied to the real world.
