An algorithm must be seen to be believed.

The best programs are written so that computing machines can perform them quickly and so that human beings can understand them clearly. A programmer is ideally an essayist who works with traditional aesthetic and literary forms as well as mathematical concepts, to communicate the way that an algorithm works and to convince a reader that the results will be correct.

More data beats clever algorithms, but better data beats more data.

There is no algorithm for creativity.

Algorithms don't do a good job of detecting their own flaws.

Anyone, from the most clueless amateur to the best cryptographer, can create an algorithm that he himself can't break.

An algorithm is like a recipe.

The algorithms that orchestrate our ads are starting to orchestrate our lives.

The Google algorithm was a significant development. I've had thank-you emails from people whose lives have been saved by information on a medical website or who have found the love of their life on a dating website.

Mathematics my foot! Algorithms are mathematics too, and often more interesting and definitely more useful.

Fancy algorithms are slow when N is small, and N is usually small.

In fact, there was general agreement that minds can exist on nonbiological substrates and that algorithms are of central importance to the existence of minds.

We dont have better algorithms, we just have more data

I really wanted to talk to her. I just couldn't find an algorithm that fit.

I decry the current tendency to seek patents on algorithms. There are better ways to earn a living than to prevent other people from making use of one's contributions to computer science.

The burgeoning field of computer science has shifted our view of the physical world from that of a collection of interacting material particles to one of a seething network of information. In this way of looking at nature, the laws of physics are a form of software, or algorithm, while the material world-the hardware-plays the role of a gigantic computer.

I have a simple algorithm, which is, wherever you see paid researchers instead of grad students, that's not where you want to be doing research.

Humans are very good at making algorithms work eventually.

By 2025, 80 percent of the functions doctors do will be done much better and much more cheaply by machines and machine learned algorithms.

[The Euclidean algorithm is] the granddaddy of all algorithms, because it is the oldest nontrivial algorithm that has survived to the present day.

In comparison, Google is brilliant because it uses an algorithm that ranks Web pages by the number of links to them, with those links themselves valued by the number of links to their page of origin.

Mathematics is as much an aspect of culture as it is a collection of algorithms.

There is no Algorithm for Humor

It is cheaper to pay mathematicians and computer scientists to design algorithms that will eliminate webspamming, rather than to pay lawyers to do lawsuits.

More than sixty years ago, mathematical logicians, by defining precisely the concept of an algorithm, gave content to the ancient human idea of an effective calculation. Their definitions led to the creation of the digital computer, an interesting example of thought bending matter to its ends.
