I guess the best way to think of an algorithm is a mathematical calculation for use in different scenarios. Search algorithms are mathematical calculations to find items within collections of items.

In mathematics, computer science, and related subjects, an algorithm is an effective method for solving a problem expressed as a finite sequence of steps. Algorithms are used for calculation, data processing, and many other fields.

An Algorithm is a collective set of instruction which is given to a computer a calculator to perform certain tasks. Algorithms  can be expressed in any language like English or Italian or in any programming language like java or c++.

Algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculation, data processing, and automated reasoning.

An algorithm is a set of instructions for multivariate calculations that learn and adapt over time. To humanize this answer for digital advertising, an algorithm is a calculation that should simply meet customers’ goals creating value in the most cost-effective and transparent ways possible.

An algorithm is a set of rules or operations for solving a problem. In web marketing, algorithms are used by search engines to rank search results in an index.

The word ‘algorithm’ is often one of the first talking points that vendor partners in our space refer to but can say very little about given that most platforms are built on proprietary technology. This overuse of the word has created ‘algorithm fatigue’ and resulted in loss of meaning. Advertisers who want more than just marketing speak around algorithms should focus on customization to fit their needs and bottom line revenue results that are transparent.

A formula or set of steps for solving a particular problem. To be an algorithm, a set of rules must be unambiguous and have a clear stopping point. All these process should be indicates in flow chart.

An algorithm is a sequence of unambiguous instructions for solving a problem, i.e., for obtaining a required output for any legitimate input in a finite amount of time.
