How lessons learned from computer algorithms can help you solve day-to-day problems.

<p>When making a decision, it can be hard to know when to keep looking for options or when to stop looking and make a choice. This is true whether you’re looking for an apartment, spouse, or parking space. But it turns out there’s an algorithm that provides an exact answer: You should stop looking after you’ve seen 37% of the possibilities. You can use human algorithms to clean out your closet, manage your time, and make more accurate predictions about the future; this Snapshot will show you how.</p>

Introduction

An algorithm is just a series of steps for solving a problem. It doesn’t necessarily involve a computer; it could be as simple as a recipe for baking a cake. Algorithms have been around as long as humans have existed. For example, sharpening a piece of flint using an antler in a specific way was an early algorithm.

It may seem strange to think about learning life lessons from computers. After all, no human aspires to become a robot. But today’s computer scientists work on ambiguous problems with incomplete information, poorly defined rules, or imprecise answers — problems that...
