A powerful computing tool that allows scientists to extract features and patterns from enormously large and complex sets of raw data has been developed by scientists at University of California, Davis, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The tool "“ a set of problem-solving calculations known as an algorithm "“ is compact enough to run on computers with as little as two gigabytes of memory.The team that developed this algorithm has already used it to probe a slew of...

A more human approach to processing raw data could change the way that computers deal with information, according to academics at The University of Nottingham. Researchers in the School of Computer Science at the University's Malaysia Campus are exploring "Ëœgranular computing' "” a computer paradigm that looks at groups or sets of information, called information granules, rather than the high level of detail at which data is currently processed. By looking at data in this...

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculations, automated reasoning, and data processing. An algorithm is an effective technique expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and an initial input, the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states and eventually...
