Applied Computational Thinking Problems

In this chapter, we will be providing multiple examples of various applications of the Python programming language and computational thinking. We will be exploring algorithm designs in areas such as humanities, linguistics, and cryptography. We will use what we’ve learned so far about computational thinking and the Python programming language to do the following:

  • Analyze historical speeches
  • Write stories
  • Calculate text readability
  • Find the most efficient route
  • Implement cryptography
  • Implement cybersecurity
  • Create a chatbot
  • Web scraping
  • Create a QR code

This chapter is unlike the others, as we will focus exclusively on presenting problems and providing algorithmic solutions after evaluating each scenario. ...
