I have given a talk addressing the importance of “Algorithms in the Digital Age”at İdea Teknoloji Çözümleri .  Thanks for the kind invitation and the sincere hospitality I received during my visit.  

We have discussed why the design and analysis of algorithms make a significant difference in applications, particularly in massive data processing and IoT environments. We spent time on introducing the issues such as approximation and randomized algorithms, streaming data processing, external memory algorithms as well as data compression and compressed data processing. Theory and practice in scope of algorithm engineering was a main point of concern.
