Teach'a Talk: Professor Zack Butler on Puzzles
Monday, May 12, 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Title: What puzzles can teach us about CS, and vice versa
"In this talk, I will discuss two different types of puzzles and how
they are essentially algorithmic in nature. The first type is the
pencil-and-paper, Sudoku-like puzzle. In these puzzles, the rules
are made clear and the goal is to find the unique solution. While
many such puzzles can be solved with a backtracking algorithm, other
algorithms can (must) be used, and a good understanding of complexity
can help us figure out what is and is not feasible. The second type
of puzzle is the more open-ended, instruction-less, puzzle hunt
puzzle. These are often much less amenable to computational solutions,
but the way that people try to solve them (i.e. figure out what to
do with the pile of information presented) is much like the type of
problem solving that computer scientists have to do."
Sample puzzles will be provided!
