Automate This: How Algorithms Came to Rule Our World
Automate This: How Algorithms Came to Rule Our World
von Christopher Steiner
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant insights, 23. Oktober 2012
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
As a reader of several tech blogs I thought I would be up to date to what is happening in the tech world. Indeed I was not. The reason is simple. Tech blogs are extended arm of marketing departments - other developments are kept almost secret.
In "Automate this - How algorithms came to rule our world" Steiner managed to interview some of the hidden masterminds - even of companies operating mostly in stealth mode. A creator of an algorithm turning his "child" into a cashcow has no need to tell the world about it! Steiner tells diverse success stories where algorithms really start "to rule the world". Every aspect of life is indeed affected - and any job: lawyers, doctors, psychiatrists, salesmen, journalists, artists, truck drivers, financial businessmen and many other. Steiner brilliantly brings light into the fight for talents between Wall Street and other tech companies. The chapter about psychologic analysis of humans by algorithms was to me the most fascinating. The astounding findings of Kahler and Capers are in Germany nearly unknown and not present in university lectures.

This is a book any person with base knowledge of information technology should read. It covers even the latest developments until end of 2011. Psychologists should as well read "The Process Therapy Model - The Six Personality Types With Adaptations" of Dr. Taibi Kahler directly - available via US-version of amazon.
