Physicist Richard Feynman remarked about scientists that if you can t explain what you are doing to your grandmother, then you don t understand what you are doing That s from the guy who made common sense out of quantum electrodynamics QED.The sorry fact of the matter is that science relies upon obscure vocabulary, technical jargon and a maze of self reference, a practice that holds the curious public at a comfortable two arms length distance Important information is certainly conveyed through t [...]

A surprisingly interesting and simple read though perhaps overly simple in many parts on some of the most important computer algorithms used today and how computer scientists solved for them The writing is better than you would expect, the concepts are interesting how google developed search algorithms, how secure transactions are run online, etc , and the details are explained in a way so that no prior knowledge of algorithms or computer programming is necessary.The only thing some readers may [...]

Enjoyed this very much It is utterly enthralling, clearly written, and beautifully typeset I think that, if people were exposed to this sort of technical clarity in concept early enough, we may have interest in science and technology than we do in the U.S currently lack of interest does not seem to be much of a problem in parts of India, by contrast.I am familiar than I realized with the contents at least in the first chapter , so there is not yet much new to me but I ve been making software f [...]

I like the premise of this book Describe the key algorithms that make everyday computing possible in a simple accessible manner Some of these algorithms include, indexing and pagerank which govern how search engines work, compression algorithms like JPEG which shrink the size of files, public key encryption which is the foundation for secure internet commerce and digital signatures, among others I believe the author achieves his stated purpose which is to relate these beautiful and critical algo [...]

3 ragioni per leggerlo Se pensando al termine informatica vi vengono in mente solo aggeggi che fanno bip bip bip o programmi misteriosi che hanno la tendenza a non funzionare proprio quando servono vi state perdendo tantissimo Potreste scoprire che con qualche strumento in pi anche l informatica diventa affascinante come un cielo stellato davanti agli occhi di un astronomo dilettante Il capitolo dedicato al riconoscimento di forme pattern recognition va al di l del puro fascino della comprension [...]

Too simple, perhaps because I already knew something about the topics I ended up a little bit annoyed by all the simple examples with colours and padlocks and gave it up I would recommend it for someone who doesn t know anything about computer algorithms.

An accessible, clearly written, and interesting overview of the interesting ideas out there, without getting bogged down in the details of implementation If you have a tactical understanding of some of the algorithms described in this book especially if you ve ever had to do the challenging work of implementing any of these ideas in actual code you may be tempted to write the book off as surface level or gross oversimplification But that s the point any one of these topics could fill an entire [...]

Review of John MacCormick, 9 Algorithms that Changed the Future, Princeton University Press, 2012.An algorithm is a well defined procedure for performing a task A household example of an algorithm is a recipe for example, the list of ingredients together with the sequence of instructions needed to bake a pie In order for a computer to perform a task, it needs ingredients the data and instructions the algorithm.Author John MacCormick, currently Professor of Computer Science at Dickinson College, [...]

C solo una cosa che non mi piaciuta di questo libro gli esempi sono cos semplificati che spesso diventa difficile riuscire a capire esattamente qual la relazione con i sistemi reali Usare la moltiplicazione anzich l elevamento a potenza pu lasciare perplessi, perch tutti sanno fare le divisioni e non si capisce perch invece il logaritmo discreto sarebbe cos difficile da calcolare Allo stesso modo l insistenza sui trucchi per trovare mi sembra un tentativo di far pensare che l informatica sia un [...]

This book is actually not really targeted to computer scientists like me, since I knew 8 of the 9 algorithms described in the book Internet searches and indices was the exception However, it did remind me a bit of my college days Instead, this book is targeted to people who aren t computer scientists and want to get a feel for what computer scientists think about and what they do To that end, it s difficult to say how successful it is since I don t know how well it introduces the nine ideas to s [...]

Discuss computer science beyond programming is a great idea MacCormick even compiled an interesting set of algorithms together with easy to follow explanations The computability example was fun but the whole book still needs some work on its presentation I felt a bit annoyed by the constant use of to keep it simple as possible the whole thing should unfold smoothly.

Best explanation on RSA I ve read Even better than its source material The Code Book by Simon Singh

Simple and interesting for a casual read Too trivial for a computer scientist or programmer

I got this ebook in Chinese for some time already, but i hesitated to read it because it s about computer science It turned out to be actually very interesting about how the search engine works.With his very easy examples and explanations, i get to understand public key cryptography , pageRank , hamming code , two dimensional parity , low density parity check code , nearest neighbor classifier , decision tree , artificial neural network.For how the zip files work, same as earlier trick ex, Ab1c2 [...]

Simply and straightforwardly written, illustrated sparingly but usefully, this would make a great introductory text for programming in either high school or the first year of college I could see assigning it in a composition course, even, since it teaches basic logic, deduction, and narrative building techniques in order to teach these algorithms I probably would not have grasped the implications of PGP Pretty Good Privacy encryption which I read about extensively in We Are Anonymous Inside the [...]

Big mistake I should have bought a paper version of this book and not an electronic.This is certainly not for everyone but I found it fascinating I can t say that I understood it all despite being told by the author that I did not need to know the nitty gritty of computer science I think he was wrong You certainly need to have a better knowledge than I had, to appreciate it some of the points he was making and these became difficult as the book reached its conclusion It would have been far bett [...]

MacCormick really broke down the concepts to the level of a common reader whoever that may be His explanations were completely weeded out of technicalities can be understood by anyone really This is both a good thing and a bad thing It is good if you know very little about algorithms and just want the gist of it but if you have prior knowledge then the book is too simplified.An example is the RSA encryption protocol John went on and on about padlock and keys and a lot of them until I lost track [...]

At first, the overly simple explanations did not excite me and I did not really expect too much from the book However, the sophisticated mathematical terms and programming jargon is not what this book was about On the contrary, the analogies and the ingenious tricks makes you appreciate the ideas behind computer science, showing that it is not coding, but creativity what drives this science forward.

Book describes couple interesting algorithms page rank, digital signature, indexing, encrypting data, pattern recognition It is written in very easy language so all non tech people also should understand the main concept For me developer with couple years of experience some of the information was still very interesting From the book you can choose the chapters which are the most interesting for you and read only this I think two of those chapters I will read in the future again.

Excellent introduction to the amazing work people have done with technology help keep information safer and give us cool services like Google The underlying concepts of ground breaking discoveries are explained in layman s terms so you don t have to spend all of your time trying to understand new processes The analogies in this book are great

Lovey, fascinating read that is easy for people with no previous background in computer science to understand As some have complained that MacCormick dumbs everything down too much, I m speaking as a rising high school sopho who was assigned this as pre class summer reading.

Bit verbose.

Interesting, but I will not understand the math, no matter how beautiful it is Also, hardcover was first published in 2012, so maybe a little dated

Covers algorithms used in a lot of everyday technology, such as search indexes, page rank, public key crypto, digital signatures, error correcting code, pattern recognition decision tree, neural network, nearest neighbors , databases, data compression, and halting problem Author explained the high level concepts without submerging reader in lots of maths This is really good style for introducing someone who never heard of these things that might be intimidated by the material.

Computer science is no about computers than astronomy is about telescopes Edsger Dijkstra E indiscutibile che negli ultimi cinquanta anni l informatica abbia profondamente trasformato la societ ed incredibile quanto questa disciplina sia poco conosciuta in rapporto alla sua pervasivit nella vita delle persone Ma cosa l informatica La maggior parte delle persone ne hanno una percezione profondamente errata ed a questo contribuisce il fatto che questa materia venga insegnata poco e male nelle nos [...]

Recensione pubblicata su Cronache di BetelgeuseUna lettura molto approfondita sul mondo d internet e di tutte le tecnologie che ci ruotano attorno Anche se stato scritto nel 2011, le idee che analizza l autore sono ancora attuali Gli algoritmi sono stati integrati nella tecnologia internet che usiamo tutti i giorni, a volta senza neanche saperlo Il bello di queste scoperte che si integrano nelle nostre azioni quotidiane, facilitandoci alcune operazioni.Nonostante la volont sia di mantenere un to [...]

itknowledgeexchange.techtargetBook Review Nine Algorithms That Changed the Future A Good Read For Developers And BeyondWhether you are a rookie, amateur or an expert in coding, this book would definitely prove to be an interesting read for you It does not really matter if you are not a developer, even then it will definitely give you a good amount of interesting information Whether you are tester, programmer, or a non technical having a fair amount of interest in technology and logical thinking, [...]

An easy to follow explanation of how the math behind computer stuff works for the less mathematically knowledgeable Some of the concepts I was already familiar with like compression , but some, like the explanation of artificial neural networks, was demystifying Before reading this, when my kids would ask me how computers worked, I d say math , now I can actually attempt to explain some of it.

This book has a lot of things going for it the writing is smooth enough and the examples are interesting enough that I didn t feel compelled to skip over even the concepts that I was already quite familiar with In several cases, these helped me understand something in theory that I only previously understood in practice However, while it was a pleasant read, I can t say that I got much out of it or increased my substantive knowledge of algorithms to any great degree One of the reasons I was some [...]

Interesting read I am an outsider when it comes to computer science So I was the exact target audience as the writer has envisioned, a curious mind interested in new scientific knowledge that would not help him directly in any way, but instead would generate the happiness and wonderful feeling of knowing the unknown He has succeeded very much, he has described the nine beautiful algorithm in very lucid way, never skipping any step in between Though this strength sometimes becomes is weakness as [...]
