Chaitin’s Constant

Chaitin’s constant is a favorite discussion in Algorithmic Information Theory. It’s fascinating how an unquantifiable figure, an uncomputable figure can stand for so much. Chaitin’s constant, in a sense, is regarded as normal and transcendental. It is believed that there is no algorithm that can truly calculate or even guess the number or its digits. … More Chaitin’s Constant

Reply to CLUB ACTIVITY #2 – DAILY USES OF ALGORITHM

Algorithms sound very computational and mechanical yet they are adapted in artistic ways, as well. Also referred as “automated composition,” Algorithmic composition is reserved for the use of formal procedures to make music with minimal human intervention. Before the invention of complex programming on computer, the use of algorithms was simple match between the set … More Reply to CLUB ACTIVITY #2 – DAILY USES OF ALGORITHM

How Algorithms Remind Us of Recipes

We’ve been going on and on about the different applications of algorithms for some time now. But for new readers who stumbled upon this blog, let’s take a look on the fundamentals surrounding algorithms. Explaining how algorithms work can be a daunting task. To simplify things, let’s simply equate algorithms to recipes. They’re almost similar, … More How Algorithms Remind Us of Recipes

TF-IDF Algorithm for Identifying Trending Keywords

Nowadays, most businesses rely on the list of trending topics and keywords to decide on major business decisions. These keywords tell them what they need to know – market behavior, current needs or wants of consumers and what’s in and what’s not. It’s faster than undergoing any market research. To come up with these trending … More TF-IDF Algorithm for Identifying Trending Keywords

Reply to Club Topic #2: Logical circuits; if-else, while, break/continue

We undergo sets of logical circuits while reaching to a conclusion, or a answer. Those algorithms are quite similar to those of computer programming language, especially ‘if-else’, and ‘while’. First, if-else loop, or ‘conditionals’ in easy language, is simply executing programmed action at certain conditions. For example, let’s think of a simple code that receives … More Reply to Club Topic #2: Logical circuits; if-else, while, break/continue
