About this course
As society undergoes major trends in automation, artificial intelligence, and ubiquitous computing, the gap between those that understand algorithms and those that don’t grows rapidly. The constantly shifting landscape of sought-after skills and jobs in the 21st century makes it imperative for young people to be able to understand, control, and manipulate basic algorithms.
While the only constant is change, the concepts and basics of algorithms and algorithmic theory form the basis upon which much of the upcoming changes are built. Roughly speaking, understand algorithms and you’ll be well equipped to thrive in the upcoming decades.
