What is applied computational thinking?


Applied computational thinking involves using computational principles to design and manage complex systems within organizations. The concept builds on computational tools to create more sophisticated and auditable systems that streamline processes, implement intricate incentive structures, and ensure that efforts align with a company's objectives and mission.

As explained by on , applied computational thinking allows businesses to leverage computational power for problem-solving and decision-making. It combines various disciplines, often borrowing concepts from game theory, economics, and control theory to optimize business operations in a data-driven manner 1 2.

Applied Computational Thinking

Tobi discusses the potential of applied computational thinking in building complex systems and incentive structures for businesses. He also expresses his frustration with the current state of academia and proposes a founder-led academic institution to focus on practical problem-solving.
