<p><b>A fascinating exploration of how computer algorithms can be applied to our everyday lives, helping to solve common decision-making problems and illuminate the workings of the human mind</b></p><p>All our lives are constrained by limited space and time, limits that give rise to a particular set of problems. 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 problems for decades. And the solutions they've found have much to teach us.</p><p> In a dazzlingly interdisciplinary work, acclaimed author Brian Christian (who holds degrees in computer science, philosophy, and poetry, and works at the intersection of all three) and Tom Griffiths (a UC Berkeley professor of cognitive science and psychology) show how the simple, precise algorithms used by 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 human memory, <i>Algorithms to Live By</i> transforms the wisdom of computer science into strategies for human living.</p>

<h2>I wasn't smart enough to learn a computer language like Python鈥攗ntil I got smart about <em>how</em> to learn it.</h2><p>I was smart enough to earn an honors degree in philosophy from Harvard, but an aptitude test told me to avoid computer programming. I'm sure it was right. But then I designed a learning system for myself that quadrupled my aptitude for learning computer languages. It worked so well for me that I've used it to teach coding to grandmothers, cab drivers, musicians, and 50,000 other newbies.</p><p><i>"Mark Myers' method of getting what can be...difficult information into a format that makes it exponentially easier to consume, truly understand, and synthesize into real-world application is beyond anything I've encountered before." 鈥擜mazon reviewer Jason A. Ruby reviewing my first book, A Smarter Way to Learn JavaScript</i></p><p><strong>Quadruple your learning ability.</strong></p><p>Washington University research shows that a key teaching method I use鈥攊nteractive recall practice鈥攊mproves learning performance 400 percent.</p><p><i>"I don't feel lost and I don't feel that I am forgetting things as I go along." 鈥擜mazon reviewer Leonie M. reviewing my second book, A Smarter Way to Learn HTML and CSS</i></p><p><strong>Understanding is easy. Remembering is hard.</strong></p><p>Computer languages are not inherently hard to understand, even for non-techies. <i>Remembering</i> is the problem. If you remember all of Chapter 1 through Chapter 10, you'll understand Chapter 11. But you <em>don't</em> remember. Though you read and read, most of it doesn't stick. You don't have a solid foundation to build on. Halfway through the book, it all collapses. That's when most people give up.</p><p><i>"I've signed up to a few sites like Udemy, Codecademy, FreeCodeCamp, Lynda, YouTube videos, even searched on Coursera but nothing seemed to work for me. This book takes only 10 minutes each chapter and after that, you can exercise what you've just learned right away!" 鈥擜mazon reviewer Constanza Morales reviewing my first book, A Smarter Way to Learn JavaScript</i> </p><p><strong>Interactive exercises make it stick.</strong></p><p>Research shows that you will remember everything if you're repeatedly asked to recall it. That's the beauty of flash cards. But technology offers an even better way to make information stick. With my book you get almost a thousand interactive exercises鈥攖hey're free online鈥攖hat embed the whole book in your memory. Algorithms check your work to make sure you know what you think you know. When you stumble, you do the exercise again. You keep trying until you know the chapter cold.</p><p><i>"Not only do the exercises make learning fun, they reinforce the material right away so it sinks in deeper." 鈥擜mazon reviewer Timothy B. Miller reviewing my second book, A Smarter Way to Learn HTML and CSS</i></p><p><strong>You won't get bored or sleepy.</strong></p><p>The exercises keep you engaged, give you extra practice where you're shaky, and prepare you for each next step. Every lesson is built on top of a solid foundation that you and I have carefully constructed. Each individual step is small. But all the little steps add up to real knowledge鈥攌nowledge that you retain.</p><p><i>I finally feel like I KNOW it and won't need to look up the syntax each time..." 鈥擜mazon reviewer J. Caritas reviewing my third book, A Smarter Way to Learn jQuery</i></p><p><strong>Really, it ain't that hard.</strong></p><p>Reviewing my books on Amazon, readers who've struggled with programming concepts like functions, loops, and scope write, "I had no idea these things were so simple!"</p><p><i>"...makes it much easier to suddenly realize a concept that seemed abstract and too hard to wrap your head around is suddenly not complicated at all." 鈥?Amazon reviewer IMHO reviewing A Smarter Way to Learn JavaScript</i></p><p>You don't need to be a computer genius to learn Python. You just need to be smart about <em>how</em> you learn it.</p>

The human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack. It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position. Other animals have stronger muscles or sharper claws, but we have cleverer brains.<br /><br />If machine brains one day come to surpass human brains in general intelligence, then this new superintelligence could become very powerful. As the fate of the gorillas now depends more on us humans than on the gorillas themselves, so the fate of our species then would come to depend on the actions of the machine superintelligence.<br /><br />But we have one advantage: we get to make the first move. Will it be possible to construct a seed AI or otherwise to engineer initial conditions so as to make an intelligence explosion survivable? How could one achieve a controlled detonation?<br /><br />To get closer to an answer to this question, we must make our way through a fascinating landscape of topics and considerations. Read the book and learn about oracles, genies, singletons; about boxing methods, tripwires, and mind crime; about humanity's cosmic endowment and differential technological development; indirect normativity, instrumental convergence, whole brain emulation and technology couplings; Malthusian economics and dystopian evolution; artificial intelligence, and biological<br />cognitive enhancement, and collective intelligence.<br /><br />This profoundly ambitious and original book picks its way carefully through a vast tract of forbiddingly difficult intellectual terrain. Yet the writing is so lucid that it somehow makes it all seem easy. After an utterly engrossing journey that takes us to the frontiers of thinking about the human condition and the future of intelligent life, we find in Nick Bostrom's work nothing less than a reconceptualization of the essential task of our time.
