In this program, Professor Marcus du Sautoy lifts the veil on algorithms that touch our lives every day; most of us are unaware of their extraordinary impact. The expansion in the use of algorithms has coincided with the computer age and the collation of big data. We focus on the most interesting and surprising examples which represent different categories of algorithms and look into the historical example of Euclid's Algorithm from two and half thousand years ago; the modern godfather of algorithms could only be Alan Turing. Marcus will explore how math is being used to solve real world problems and even make life and death decisions.
