But what is it, anyway? 01: Computation

less than 1 minute read

This is the first article that I’ll write on the series “But what is it, anyway?”. It’s meant to explore the concepts that we usually take for granted, but wreck us as soon as someone asks “What’s that?”.

This idea originated multiple times, every time one proffessor asked “what’s computation?, what’s an algorithm?, what’s data?, what’s a structure?”, but it was until this time (like the seventh) that I decided to actually go ahead and write about those concepts.
