Talk about a “wow” introduction

Computer science inherited its present conceptual foundations from a branch of pure mathematics that, historically, had been exploring the fundamental nature of mathematical computation since before the turn of the century. We will argue that the conceptual concerns of computer science are quite different from the conceptual concerns of mathematics, and that this mathematical legacy, in particular the notion of the algorithm, has been largely ineffective as a paradigm for computer science.
