al·go·rithm

(al'gō-ridhm),
A systematic process consisting of an ordered sequence of steps, each step depending on the outcome of the previous one. In clinical medicine, a step-by-step protocol for management of a health care problem; in computed tomography, the formulas used to calculate the final image from the transmitted x-ray data.

algorithm

(1) A sequential procedure for solving a mathematical problem.
(2) A step-by-step procedure for reaching a decision when choosing among multiple alternative options, linked to each other by a decision tree.

algorithm

Decision-making A logical set of rules for solving a specific problem, which assumes that all of the data is objective, that there are a finite number of solutions to the problem, and that there are logical steps that must be performed to arrive at each of those solutions NIHspeak A step-by-step procedure for solving a problem; a formula.

A partir de lo dicho puede presentarse ya la definicion de signo: "pues el signo es una cosa que, ademas de la forma que impone a los sentidos, hace a partir de si que algo mas llegue al pensamiento" (signum est enim res praeter speciem quam ingerit sensibus aliud aliquid ex se faciens in cogitationem venire).
Niraj added that Clone Algo is "Going into a process of going into an IPO by NASDAQ and is expected to hit 15-billion plus."
Nuestro filosofo viene asi a poner en cuestion una de las tesis que mas laboriosamente ha ido conquistando el pensamiento moderno: la afirmacion de que el sentido no es algo dado en la realidad, sino algo que solo nosotros mismos hemos ido construyendo, elaborando y proyectando mediante nuestros lenguajes, nuestras imagenes y simbolos, nuestras teorias, es decir, a traves de nuestras interpretaciones culturales.
