# Algorithms

## This Brilliant course is retiring soon. Check out our new course: Algorithm Fundamentals!

An algorithm is a step-by-step process to achieve some outcome. When algorithms involve a large amount of input data, complex manipulation, or both, we need to construct clever algorithms that a computer can work through quickly.

By the end of this course, you’ll know methods to measure and compare performance, and you’ll have mastered the fundamental problems in algorithms.
