An Algorithmic and Social Introduction to Computer Science (CSC-105 2000S)

Class 54: Core Wars

Back to Random Numbers. On to Course Evaluation.

Held Tuesday, May 9, 2000


Today's outline does not yet have an overview. Please let me know if you think it should have one.

Question 54 for discussion today: Are core wars just a game/challenge or do they have a practical/productive use? Could they? What, if any, are the social implications of core wars? And, in general, what are the pros and cons of core wars?

Question 55 for reflection tomorrow: What were the best aspects of this class? The worst?
