Algorithms are all around us. Without them we would still live in the dark ages! The Algorithm Hall of Fame is a celebration of scientific progress while fueling the debate around responsible data science. With a little help from you, this might just be the most important list of our time.
"The gradient descent algorithm has had the biggest impact in deep learning."
"Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm is sheer elegance. It should be in the Hall of Fame because of the huge number of practical applications that exist today."
I would like to add 'lookahead' and 'backchaining'. These are the fundamental modes of decision making.
