What is an Algorithm?


Artificial Intelligence and Ethics

Let's examine and question how decisions made Artificial Intelligence can affect our lives?

Natural Algorithms

Can we recognize and review algorithmic patterns that are found in nature?

Arts and Algorithms

Can we distinguish between the difference between an algorithm and it's training?

Artificial Mozart

Can we compose a work of art when interacting with a device programmed with an algorithm?

Analog Algorithms

Can we give examples of how we might already be using algorithms in our daily lives?

Bubble Sort

Can we repeat the steps of the Bubble Sort algorithm to sort 10 randomly arranged objects?

Alternative Sorting Algorithms

Can we repeat our Bubble Sort activity using two alternative sorting algorithms and estimate how efficient or inefficient they may be.

Watching Squares

Let's breakdown the algorithm used to judge if a person is walking, or doing something out of the ordinary and question how the algorithm would work if the person had a disability that disrupted the way they walk.
