# What is an algorithms for starters

What is an algorithms  and how does it relate to automation  and software  in the field of  computing  and information technology  ? The answers to both are as surprising and intriguing as you might have expected. I am starting with the latter of the two and going into the former in the following sections.

Automatic Information Processing Automatic processing is an area in which computers can, through the process of computation , produce information that was previously unanalyzed or unfathomable. In some cases, this can result in novel and creative new patterns of behavior. Some examples are the production of music from scratch, the creation of new words, or a simple program that learns to play the samba guitar.

An algorithm is any set of rules that determine how you get from point A to point B. This is different from a technique, which is a specific skill that is taught by a master.

The Difference Between Programming and Algorithms

Some might argue that the distinction between programming and algorithms isn’t important, but I disagree. We’re all programmed. There is a difference between how you program and how you algorithm. Algorithms can be used as a way to solve certain problems or they can be used to solve specific problems. We use the same programming language that we use for coding.

You can program an algorithm with the Python programming language. Programming is how you learn how to program. Algorithms are how you do what you programmed.

The rule for finding the average is that it should take into account the fact that there are many different ways of finding averages, and not just the one. And the rule for finding the maximum is that the average is not guaranteed to be exactly the maximum.

So to find the average, the algorithm takes into account several things:

The number of observations. (How many people did we see in each sample?) The mean. (The mean of the samples.) The standard deviation. (How big is the standard deviation?)

For a simple example like a random walk, the rule for finding the average is the number of samples in each step. For a simple example like the average of the last 10 digits of pi, the rule for finding the average is the number of digits.
How Programming Helps You Build Knowledge

Programming helps you build knowledge because when you program, you can practice what you know by making your code run on real systems.
An algorithm is a piece of software that is used to solve a problem. A software program or a piece of computer software is a program that is run to accomplish a certain task. A computer program or computer software can be a program you write to do something. For example, a computer program can be used to analyze a stock chart to determine the best stock to buy or to send email to a list of people.
