Non-cryptographic hashing functions: The Infinity Stones of Computer Science – Part 1

The new number 2: “You are number six” Number six: “I’m not a number! I am a free man!” The new number 2: “Hahahahaha” The quote above (The Prisoner 1960s TV series) highlights an extreme form of hashing, I’ll grant you that. However, that is after all, a form of hashing – turning something (or someone in this case) into a number. The new number 2 must have been a computer scientist because he is laughing his head off at number six’s accusing objection. Number 2 was clearly looking at a much bigger picture! How powerful can such simple concept possibly be? In this three-parts article I will argue that hashing functions are Computer Science’s own Infinity Stones!

Back to Basics

Someone: “Hey, check out this juicy programming problem!” Dan Cowan: “I can think of at least three ways of solving it.” Does that mean Dan’s a genius? Perhaps (if you ask him, he’ll say yes). Another possibility is that whilst learning his craft he developed the habit of thinking of alternative ways of solving the same problems. In fact, I would argue that the extent of his (coding) skills is a direct consequence of this habit.
