How Do Algorithms Work – Answered With Fried Chicken

It’s chicken…in a waffle cone. It’s fork-free. It’s @chickncone! I’m reading a book on automation and as I’m done getting the stories and theories, my brain goes to food.

Intelligent automation is powered by algorithms. Algorithms are made up of lines of code based on binary decisions. All those yes/no or 1/0 answers get strung together in thousands of lines of code to assess the situation and make a decision.

As I’m learning this process I start thinking about food that could’ve been designed by a computer.
