Udacity CS313 Intro to Theoretical Computer Science: Dealing with Challenging Problems

  • 0:00 - 0:02
    If you’re working as a computer
    scientist,
  • 0:02 - 0:05
    no matter whether it’s in computational
    biology,
  • 0:05 - 0:08
    finance, logistics, or even the
    secret service,
  • 0:08 - 0:10
    chances are
  • 0:10 - 0:11
    that you’ll come across
  • 0:11 - 0:13
    very tough problems that can only be
  • 0:13 - 0:15
    solved by a computer. Or so you might
  • 0:15 - 0:17
    think because here’s the bad news:
  • 0:17 - 0:19
    There are literally thousands
  • 0:19 - 0:21
    of problems out there
  • 0:21 - 0:22
    for which you might think that
    it’s
  • 0:22 - 0:24
    simple for a computer to solve them
  • 0:24 - 0:25
    but it’s actually very hard,
  • 0:25 - 0:27
    if not downright impossible.
  • 0:27 - 0:29
    This course introduces you to theoretical
  • 0:29 - 0:31
    computer science, the area of computer
    science
  • 0:31 - 0:34
    that deals with very hard
    problems.
  • 0:34 - 0:36
    And I think that even if you plan to
  • 0:36 - 0:38
    become a very practical computer
    scientist,
  • 0:38 - 0:41
    it’s vital that you know about those
    theoretical concepts
  • 0:41 - 0:43
    Plus, we will also encounter some
  • 0:43 - 0:45
    really fascinating and mind boggling
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    results from theoretical computer
    science,
  • 0:47 - 0:49
    such as deceptively simple
    problems that
  • 0:49 - 0:52
    no computer will ever be able to solve.
  • 0:52 - 0:54
    So I’m happy to invite you to take this
    journey
  • 0:54 - 0:57
    into the science of challenging problems.
