It can sound a bit simple at first, but the human - algo stories are terrific.
Edit: why? Because you believe in the leverage algorithms can provide
There are probably a lot of single people here that would benefit from that book as well (the stopping problem)
We all "know" the algos. But reading/hearing how they can be applied and what effect they can have on your life can be enlightening.
Basically, I read tons of non fiction and follow breaking tech news on sites like these so I get a little burnt out when I go to read books like:
- Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions (https://www.amazon.com/Algorithms-Live-Computer-Science-Decisions/dp/1627790365)
- Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind (https://www.amazon.com/Sapiens-Humankind-Yuval-Noah-Harari/dp/0062316095)
I recently read:
- Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore: A Novel (https://www.amazon.com/Mr-Penumbras-24-Hour-Bookstore-Novel/dp/1250037751)
last fall and loved it; diving back into the world of fiction and fantasy. Do y'all have any other suggestions?
