"Wise, sharp and witty, the definitive guide to living in the age of social media, algorithms and automation.'' (Adam Rutherford)  

あらすじ・解説

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Hello World by Hannah Fry. 

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 judgment. Yet a human can look you in the eye before passing sentence. 

You need a liver transplant to save your life. Who would you want in charge of organ allocation?

An algorithm can match organ donors with patients, potentially saving many more lives. But it may send you to the back of the queue. 

You’re buying a (driverless) car. One vehicle is programmed to save as many lives as possible in a collision. Another promises to prioritise the lives of its passengers. Which do you choose? 

Welcome to the age of the algorithm, the story of a not-too-distant future where machines rule supreme, making important decisions - in health care, transport, finance, security, what we watch, where we go, even whom 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 great start on you AI journey

This is a great introduction to artificial intelligence and the power of algorithms. You don’t need previous knowledge of the technology to understand. Everyone should educate themselves on this issues since it will change the world we know.

Good for noobs

I know about the tram dilemma and Tesla car programming dilemmas. And so on, if you’re familiar with a sort of mid level understanding for logarithm, this feels a bit entry level. Otherwise, it’s well written and entertaining. I would recommend it to the uninformed.

Painfully shallow

Lots of interesting things are mentioned, but then moves on to the next interesting thing. I would be interested in a non abridged version, but this one I can't recommend.

Better for a layman than AI enthusiast

Good and enjoyable treatment of machine learning for the uninitiated. But I have followed the field for some time, so most of the matter was quite familiar already, and I even had heard many of the anecdotes and stories before. So depending on where I come from it might be an excellent book, or just something to pass the time in the train, even though you heard much of it before. Well read by the author as well!

Great

Good book. Could have been more in depth but that's maybe because I had read more about the topic before. Thanks to the author for reading the book herself.

The age of Machine Learning

This book is a brief overview of machine learning in its current state. What it does well and how it goes wrong. The author is accurate in her assessment that algorithms are far from perfect, and can sometimes miscalculated conclusions in serious issues such as Court Judgement, Facial Recognition, as well as a plethora of other areas. Her conclusion certainly does not dismiss the take over of human higher functions by artificial intelligence, but is prudent and realistic timetable and explains why algorithms have a way to go. I was somewhat disappointed, that the different ways machine learning is achieved was not discussed in depth, but understand that such detail may not be as attractive to readers who are new to the subject. Very good book, recommended to those who are new to the subject, and are interested in AI’s recent achievements.

A very well balanced and informative view

The impact of computing on society, equally showing pros and cons. Compelling, informative and scientific. As opposed to many other publications under this topic this book provides a balanced view of what "algorithms" do to society. Often this topic is tackled by die-hard proponents, promising paradise on earth by means of intelligent machines or fear mongering opponents, predicting our extinction by a rogue AI. This book instead offers facts. Real world examples if what algorithms can do and cases in which they failed, in addition to scientific studies and papers outlining just what exactly algorithms are capable of and what they will never achieve. Hannah beautifully manages to convey complex topics such as Bayesian probability in simple words and keep the listener engaged whilst ensuring what is said is precise and scientifically sound. In a old where it feels as though everything must be black and white, one is either for it or against it, it is especially valuable for a book to be so balanced and "Grey" in the best way. I personally think this is a must read. For everyone. Algorithms interact with everyone and it's only going to increase in the future. Particularly those people unfamiliar with the workings and limitations of computers will find a highly accurate and easy to understand outline of algorithmic capabilities in this book. It was so worth it to renew my audible subscription to get this book.

Fascinating, thought-provoking and terrifying 😨

Always been a fan since the early days of Radio 4's "Curious Cases" and had been looking forward to this. It's really good. Educational and makes you think, and the section describing how China uses social media is *literally* something out of Black Mirror. I see it as a companion piece to Yuval Noah Harari's "Homo Deus". Dr. Fry talks about the science, Harari discusses the consequences. Both are excellent. And plus, listening to the Audible version means you get Hannah Fry's Lauren-Bacall-if-she-came-from-Essex voice breathing at you for several hours. Which is nice.

Just brilliant

I have always appreciated the work of Hannah Fry since I first heard of her, but this book was more than anything I could have asked for. It’s a book full of tons of little story’s I will be repeating to my friends (only if I haven’t already made them buy themselves). Undoubtedly worth using my audible free trial for this. If I had to sum it up in a phrase: MIND EXPANDING. And her voice is amazing. This book will give you something to say at every family dinner for the next year or so. Well done Hannah! :)

Wow! What a great listen

I was really looking forward to this book being released and I wasn’t disappointed. I have read a lot of books already about ‘big data’, artificial intelligence and algorithms, but the difference with Dr Fry’s work is that it weaves in human stories alongside the description of the technology. Many of the examples given in the book are well established, such as Deep Blue beating Gary Kasparov at chess, but the book discusses as much about Kasparov’s emotional response to Deep Blue’s strategy as much as the algorithm behind it. This really brings home the idea that the future of this technology is as much about the human condition as it is about the technology itself. This book has something for everyone irrespective of whether you are looking for an introduction to the subject or already have a good understanding. The narration is excellent and the book flows so easily that I ended up listening to the whole thing in one day.

Some excellent points, well narrated. I wish the book were longer and with more examples. it's make great essential reading for Computer Science ethics classes. though she pronounced "precisely" strangely at the end there.

If you are working with algorithms or not, this is a book that you should definitely read to be able to understand better the digital devices. I enjoyed every word of it. The voice as well is very pleasant to listen to.

best reader, really good but skip chapters 9-10

if you've seen her on TV or YouTube till understand how well read this book is, it's very interesting expect gets abstract in three last chapter and I really switched off. definitely worth a listen if you like to learn.

Great Overview of Modern Machine Learning

A highly-accessible overview of the role that machine learning plays in our society. Many of the examples will be familiar: self-driving cars, medical AI, creating art using machines etc. What makes this book stand out is that Fry does a great job of toning down the sensationalism that usually dominates these discussions (using crime prediction does not automatically lead to Minority Report). She approaches each topic judiciously, clearly describing the pros and cons of the various machine learning algorithms and their current state of development. This latter aspect alone can be very surprising, in particular how far we really are from the dream of fully autonomous (so-called "level 5") vehicles. Brilliantly narrated, full of life and the great passion that Fry has for this topic is evident on every page. Highly recommended.

Excellent but not without flaws

An excellent work. I would have liked a bit more detail on somethings but it didn't drag down the rest not having it. The biggest issue is as I listen in the car when Hannah Fry speaks quietly, usually for emphasis or to make a point, it can be all but impossible to hear at times. Turning up the volume is not an option as she returns to full volume within seconds which would blow out the speakers. Other than that it's a high recommend.

Elaborate ideas, simple explanations

This book was excellent in its capacity to take the complex world of algorithms, bias and broader philosophy, breaking it down into bite-size chunks with a number of case studies prepared to elaborate on each claim. A very well-written and informative book that embraces the challenge of unpacking algorithms with vigour.

Eye opener

Loved it. It's an eye opener and some parts but mostly a better understanding of the workings of algorithms in our lives. Reminder that it doesn't have to be a zero sum relationship with machine.

Engaging, Insightful and a Little Bit Terrifying

Hello World is a masterpiece that tells the stories of the many algorithms and neural networks that work behind the scenes in our day to day lives. While most of these machines are created with good intentions, learning the extent of their knowledge and their capacity for error is often a sobering experience.

Great for Math nerds

Easy listening and narrated with the emotion that is warranted for some of the heavier themes.
