Regulate This! Time to subject algorithms to our laws

Re: Feedback

"Algorithm - a process or set of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations".

I once had some university professor ask me what algorithms I was using on my current project, which was a simple data transfer from one system to another.

No calculations or problem-solving as far as I could see, it was simply shifting data from A to B.

As such, I didn't understand the question.

I suppose it did demonstrate that I wasn't used to obfuscating stuff by the use of academic language...
