Algorithms: Secret Rules of Modern Living

Modern life has been taken over by computer algorithms. Hidden from view, they run everything from search engines, travel plans, and how doctors save lives. Mathematician Professor Marcus du Sautoy demystifies the hidden world of algorithms, showing us where these 2,000-year-old problem-solvers came from, how they work, what they have achieved. The most advanced forms can even program themselves.
