“Algorithmic thinking as a novel and productive point of view for understanding and transforming the sciences, started probably with Turing. Natural phenomena in many scientific fields (including mathematics, statistics, physics, astronomy, biology and economics) are intrinsically computational in nature: examples include chemical processes in living cells, the self-organizing behavior of complex systems consisting of many interacting particles, mechanisms governing human evolution, and the collective behavior of competing agents in an economy. These natural science areas should be explored through a computational lens.”
