Is it artificial intelligence or is it just a modern-day algorithm of computer science? Today, we use algorithms for all sorts of things, and they are often the backbone running many of our computer systems. And indeed as the algorithms get better, more adapted, and work better in combination – neither mathematics or human civilization will ever be the same again.If you’d like to learn more about how modern-day algorithms came about, or how they’ve changed our lives, or how the combination of algorithms and the information in digital age have come forth to change all we see and all we know – there is a very good book I’d like to recommend to you, and it is a book that I do indeed own myself. The name of the book is;”The Advent of the Algorithm – The Idea That Rules the World” by David Berlinski, published by Harcourt, New York, NY, 2000, pages 345, ISBN: 0-15-100338-6.This book was written by a mathematician and this is same author wrote the best selling mathematics book; “A Tour of the Calculus,” luckily, however this particular book is very easy to read for a layman, so I don’t have a problem recommending it to any of my friends. Most people don’t fully understand what algorithms are or how they work. But once you are done with this book you will understand, and you also understand the power behind them.Today, we use algorithms to trade stocks, search for information online, and for decision-making tools. Algorithms are used in the military, government, academia, and even by normal citizens in nearly everything we do. The corporations and businesses use them in so many ways they can’t even all be listed. Each and every day new methods, and concepts harness the value of mathematical algorithms. Indeed, I hope you will please consider owning this book for your own personal library.
