Algorithms and the World Wide Web
The Internet and the World Wide Web have enabled new methods for communicating and working with data. What is the underlying infrastructure for the Internet? What are the algorithms used to move bits of data around? How is your credit card number kept secure when you buy a book from Amazon or Baidu? How is your location determined using GPS when you use Google Maps? How do some dating websites match people? We will discuss some of the system building and algorithmics that power the World Wide Web.
