What are algorithms?

    I studied in Canada (in my old posts on Habré you can follow that process) thanks to a scholarship from the government of Kazakhstan called “Bolashak” (Kazakh. “Future”). The guys from essay.kz together with the administration of this scholarship regularly invite Bolashak graduates and take mini-lectures. Recently they called me, I decided to talk about the algorithms.

    In my opinion, it turned out pretty messy, but many liked it. Here is a sample lecture plan:

    • What is computer science and computer science?
    • What is an algorithm?
    • The best solutions are usually not obvious.
    • Turing Machine and Fundamental Limitations of Computer
    • What are simple and complex tasks?
    • Salesman Problem
    • Why are programming languages ​​not like human languages?
