Algorithm originated in 1690s, "Arabic system of computation," from French algorithme, refashioned (under mistaken connection with Greek arithmos "number") from Old French algorisme "the Arabic numeral system" (13c.), from Medieval Latin algorismus, a mangled transliteration of Arabic al-Khwarizmi "native of Khwarazm" (modern Khiva in Uzbekistan), surname of the mathematician whose works introduced sophisticated mathematics to the West (see algebra). The earlier form in Middle English was algorism (early 13c.), from Old French.
⬆️ Cash + ⬆️ Margins + ⬆️ Velocity + ⬆️ ROA = SCO + CX + AI + BC. The algorithm to increase cash, margins, velocity, and return on assets equals supply chain optimization plus customer experience plus artificial intelligence plus blockchain. That algorithm was not around four hundred years ago.
