?One of the best books yet written on data and algorithms. . .deserves a place on the bestseller charts.? ( The Times ) You are accused of a crime. Who would you rather determined your fate ? a human or an algorithm? An algorithm is more consistent and less prone to error of judgement. Yet a human can look you in the eye before passing sentence. Welcome to the age of the algorithm, the story of a not-too-distant future where machines rule supreme, making important decisions ? in healthcare, transport, finance, security, what we watch, where we go even who we send to prison. So how much should we rely on them? What kind of future do we want? Hannah Fry takes us on a tour of the good, the bad and the downright ugly of the algorithms that surround us. In Hello World she lifts the lid on their inner workings, demonstrates their power, exposes their limitations, and examines whether they really are an improvement on the humans they are replacing. A BBC RADIO 4: BOOK OF THE WEEK SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 BAILLIE GIFFORD PRIZE AND 2018 ROYAL SOCIETY SCIENCE BOOK PRIZE

Sie sind eines Verbrechens angeklagt. Wer soll über Ihr Schicksal entscheiden? Ein menschlicher Richter oder ein Computer-Algorithmus? Sie sind sich absolut sicher? Sie zögern womöglich? In beiden Fällen sollten Sie das Buch der jungen Mathematikerin und Moderatorin Hannah Fry lesen, das mit erfrischender Direktheit über Algorithmen aufklärt, indem es von Menschen handelt. Keine Dimension unserer Welt, in der sie nicht längst Einzug gehalten haben: Algorithmen, diese unscheinbaren Folgen von Anweisungen, die im Internet sowieso, aber auch in jedem Computerprogramm tätig sind, prägen in wachsendem, beängstigendem Ausmaß den Alltag von Konsum, Finanzen, Medizin, Polizei, Justiz, Demokratie und sogar Kunst. Sie sortieren die Welt für uns, eröffnen neue Optionen und nehmen uns Entscheidungen ab - schnell, effektiv, gründlich. Aber sie tun das häufig, ohne uns zu fragen, und sie stellen uns vor neue, keineswegs einfach zu lösende Dilemmata. Vor allem aber: Wir neigen dazu, Algorithmen als eine Art Autorität zu betrachten, statt ihre Macht in Frage zu stellen. Das öffnet Menschen, die uns ausbeuten wollen, Tür und Tor. Es verhindert aber auch, dass wir bessere Algorithmen bekommen. Solche, die uns bei Entscheidungen unterstützen, anstatt über uns zu verfügen. Die offenlegen, wie sie zu einer bestimmten Entscheidung gelangen. Demokratische, menschliche Algorithmen. Dafür plädiert dieses Buch-zugänglich, unterhaltsam, hochinformativ.

On the End of the World (eBook, ePUB)
7,99 € *

A powerful collection written on the eve of the destruction of Europe by the Second World War, by the great Joseph Roth In January 1933, on the very day Hitler seized power in Germany, Joseph Roth fled to Paris. There, in what he called the ´hour before the end of the world´, he wrote a series of articles. The end he foresaw would soon come to pass in the full horror of Hitler´s barbarism, the Second World War and most crucially for Roth, the final irreversible destruction of a pan-European consciousness. Incisive and ironic, the writing evokes Roth´s bitterness, frustration and morbid despair at the coming annihilation of the free world while displaying his great nostalgia for the Habsburg Empire into which he was born and his ingrained fear of nationalism in any form. Joseph Roth (1894?1939) was an Austrian novelist best known for his family saga The Radetzky March and for his novel of Jewish life, Job . He fought in the Austrian army in the First World War, and worked as a novelist and journalist in Frankfurt, becoming a leading Jewish intellectual of the era. With the rise of Nazism, he lived the rest of his life in exile.
