You currently work for a software development company that produces software for mobile devices. As you are part of the research and development arm, your role includes investigation into new processes that can benefit the company. One particular area of research that you have been tasked with is the use of algorithms and how they can be used to build more efficient software. This will have an impact on the software developed as efficient software can result in longer battery life and the ability to do more with the limited resources mobile devices have to offer.
As the results will need to be delivered to your peers, consider this as a mini research project that will be presented. You will need to explain what an algorithm is, with examples of their use, comparing their efficiency against brute forcing, and how it will relate to the application development process, down to the implementation in a suitable language.
Research could be conducted on your choice of algorithms, including sorting and searching data or encryption/decryption, compression/decompression.
To present your findings you can build a presentation with links to data showing the performance of an algorithm using Big O notation
