What am I doing?
I am back in graduate school. I believe I will learn something and also hope to contribute to the field of Computer Science. For anyone that doesn't quite understand Computer Science, there are two videos I recommend watching below. The first is the Map of Mathematics, then second, the Map of Computer Science. Computer Science was birthed from Mathematics, and they are closely interrelated, as with Engineering.
Many believe Computer Science is programming a computer or is Information Technology (IT), and this is wrong. Computer Science is about solving problems computationally. Computer Scientists solve problems using all types of calculation methods.
Computer Science is a vast subject full of problems for anyone to solve. Computer Science uses Mathematics, Engineering, Computer Languages, and many other tools and discoveries made over the centuries.
Hopefully this will help explain the field. When someone asks me the question, "What is Computer Science?", or asks, "Isn't it just programming a computer?", I will point them here. It is far more than programming.
