### What is Knuth algorithm?

This is a method of randomly sampling n items from a set of M items, with equal probability; where M >= n and M, the number of items is unknown until the end.

#### Can algorithms be evil?

If those algorithms are faulty, they can be gamed to spread fake, sensational news by malicious actors. Even when there’s not a direct malicious intent, they can still cause harm.

**Why are algorithms unfair?**

Algorithms are engineered by people, at least at some level, and therefore they may include certain biases held by the people who created it. Everyone is biased about something. For example, airbags were designed on assumptions about the male body, making them dangerous for women.

**Who is the creator of TeX?**

Donald Knuth

TeX, a page-description computer programming language developed during 1977–86 by Donald Knuth, a Stanford University professor, to improve the quality of mathematical notation in his books.

## Where is KMP algorithm used?

In real world KMP algorithm is used in those applications where pattern matching is done in long strings, whose symbols are taken from an alphabet with little cardinality. A relevant example is the DNA alphabet, which consists on only 4 symbols (A,C,G,T).

### Why does KMP algorithm work?

In computer science, the Knuth–Morris–Pratt string-searching algorithm (or KMP algorithm) searches for occurrences of a “word” W within a main “text string” S by employing the observation that when a mismatch occurs, the word itself embodies sufficient information to determine where the next match could begin, thus …

#### Do algorithms run our lives?

Algorithms are behind many mundane, but still consequential, decisions in your life. The code often replaces humans, but that doesn’t mean the results are foolproof. An algorithm can be just as flawed as their human creators. These are just some of the ways hidden calculations determine what you do and experience.

**Are algorithms AI?**

Artificial intelligence is a set of algorithms, which is able to cope with unforeseen circumstances. It differs from Machine Learning (ML) in that it can be fed unstructured data and still function.

**Does Donald Knuth have a stutter?**

Thank you! Especially with Mister Knuth, he’s borderline stuttering sometimes; hard to follow. That’s not borderline. He certainly has a stutter.
