Cool Science Radio - May 12, 2016

  Lynn and John’s first guest is Tom Griffiths co-author of Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human. Griffiths show how the algorithms used by computers can also untangle very human questions. They explain how to have better hunches and when to leave things to chance, how to deal with overwhelming choices and how best to connect with others.

The second guest on the program is Christophe Galfard, author of The Universe in Your Hand: A Journey Through Space.  Galfard's mission in life is to spread modern scientific ideas to the general public in entertaining ways. Using his considerable skills as a brilliant theoretical physicist and successful young adult author, The Universe in Your Hand employs the immediacy of simple, direct language to show us, not explain to us, the theories that underpin everything we know about our universe.
