Computer Science Personal Statement
“We are predicting human behavior; we are predicting climates, seasons, ocean currents, etc.” Nand says.
A number of computer scientists have argued for the distinction of three separate paradigms in computer science.
Peter Wegner argued that those paradigms are science, technology, and mathematics. Peter Denning's working group argued that they are theory, abstraction (modeling), and design.
Computer science is scaling—and scaling very fast for that matter, according to Nand. Applying computer science to prediction can have a huge impact on the world.
