Automate this : how algorithms came to rule our world
Every day more and more aspects of our modern lives are assisted or guided by computer-made decisions.  Decisions that used to take humans hours, days, or years to study and interpret are now figured out by a computer algorithm in micro-seconds.  The highly competitive financial markets were the leaders in using automation to make fast choices about buying and selling, and the science has filtered down into speech recognition patterns, medical diagnosis, musical composition, customer service, and much more.  The book is an eye-opener on the subject.  For better or worse, the bots are here to stay.
