The 10 Algorithms That Dominate Our World

The importance of algorithms in our lives today cannot be overstated. They are used virtually everywhere, from financial institutions to dating sites. But some algorithms shape and control our world more than others — and these ten are the most significant.

A nice list, but in reality they're not what I really understand as algorithms. Instead, it's more like 10 features of websites and apps that are very popular.

So what are the 10 algorithms that dominate our world? Well Marcos Otero describes what he thinks are the most important in his medium post, "The real 10 algorithms that dominate our world"

Now if you have studied algorithms the first thing that could come to your mind while reading the (io9) article is “Does the author know what an algorithm is?” or maybe “Facebook news feed is an algorithm?” because if Facebook news feed is an algorithm then you could eventually classify almost everything as an algorithm. So I’m going to try to explain in this post what an algorithm is and which are the real 10 (or maybe more ) algorithms that rule our world.
