Life is full of decisions. Where should you go on vacation, and how should you order your stops? How long should you look for an apartment before deciding? Thankfully, computer science can illuminate and rationalize decisions for us. Whether you’re on a time crunch or simply stuck, you can apply algorithms to your life for optimal decision-making.

“Up against such hard cases, effective algorithms make assumptions, show a bias toward simpler solutions, trade off the costs of error against the costs of delay, and take chances.”
