Myth Two - Computer Science is a science subject and is nothing useful to people working in non-science disciplines.
Computer Science is the "Science" for solving the important problems in our daily lives.
- "Computing" is a process in which "calculation" or "analysis" is performed for solving problems around us. It is nothing new and is closely related to us. Every day, we perform much "computing" manually, such as determining how to go to Mongkok from Kowloon Tong, and now how to prepare a good dinner with HK$50?
- The benefit of using a computing system for problem solving is that computing systems can automate the "calculation", which is much more efficient than performing the "calculation" manually by us.
- In Computer Science studies, we analyze various techniques and solutions to identify which solution is the best one for a particular problem. These techniques/solutions are generally suitable for solving our problems in various disciplines including commerce, finance, management, and in every aspect of our daily lives.
