  1. Not Synced
    If you're working as a computer scientist, no
  2. Not Synced
    matter whether it's in computational biology,
  3. Not Synced
    finance, logistics or even the secret service
  4. Not Synced
    chances are that you will come across very
  5. Not Synced
    tough problems that can only solved by a
  6. Not Synced
    computer. Or so you might think because here's
  7. Not Synced
    the bad news. There are literally thousands of
  8. Not Synced
    problems out there for which you might think
  9. Not Synced
    that its simple for a computer to solve them, but
  10. Not Synced
    actually it's very hard, if downright impossible.
  11. Not Synced
    This course introduces you to theoretical
  12. Not Synced
    computer science. The area of computer science
  13. Not Synced
    that deals with very hard problems. And I think
  14. Not Synced
    that even if you plan to become a very practical
  15. Not Synced
    computer scientist, it's vital that you know
  16. Not Synced
    about those theoretical concepts, plus we will
  17. Not Synced
    also encounter some really fascinating and mind
  18. Not Synced
    boggling results from theoretical computer
  19. Not Synced
    science, such as deceptively simple problems
  20. Not Synced
    that no computer will ever be able to solve.
  21. Not Synced
    So Im happy to invite you to take this journey
  22. Not Synced
    into the science of challenging problems.
