Sebastian  Stiller - Planet of Algorithms


Algorithms: the most important way of thinking in the present day amusingly explained

Who enters the results in Google? If this is what you ever rack your brains about, then Sebastian Stiller is your man. In this book, the Berlin mathematician explains everything you need to know about algorithms – simply and clearly. For algorithms are the most important way of thinking in the present day and far more human than we think: after all, they look for suitable partners for us and work out a fair share of rent among flatmates.

• Understanding big data without torturing ourselves: the most important education journey of the year

• For readers of Randall Monroe’s What If and Giulia Enders’ Gut: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Underrated Organ

"Clearly, humorously, and understandably written, this book by Stiller is a balanced picture of mathematical processes that are in fact increasingly permeating our everyday life."
