How is computer science used to fight cancer? Determine what movie YOU would enjoy? Drive a car?


Break into Tech – and learn how we use computer science to fight cancer, recommend movies and drive cars.

Each of these tasks requires computing and measuring relationships. Come to Break into Tech and learn this algorithm –  how to compute the shortest distance in a network of relationships. We will look at how data is represented, how it is stored, and how it is used to answer questions like the ones above. No prior experience is needed, just bring your enthusiasm. Come and see that you could be a computer scientist.

Register now for this complimentary workshop! This workshop is part of our Silicon Valley Open House program. Find out more about the open house.
