Algorithms and algorithmic systems are all around us. In this video, Dr David Beer talks us through why they’re important, and why we need to be aware of their influence on our lives.
There's a lot of stuff on Google. How can you find the things you really need? In these slides, from our Academic Googling session, we also look at the other places where academic sources of information can be found, and learn how to tailor our search skills to take advantage of different tools.
A lot of academically useful material is not published through conventional channels, and so a web search might end up being the best way to find such 'grey' literature:
Google Scholar is a Google search engine that indexes academic-type material of various formats, such as peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports. It will retrieve information from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and universities, as well as electronic journal articles. In many cases it indexes the full text of items, rather than merely bibliographic information, although the full text will not necessarily be available.
