On the contrary, what are its major differences?
As a student of computer science and philosophy at the same time, what are the similarities of the two industries?
In many ways, both computer science and philosophy are about solving problems and arguing for/proving the accuracy of our solutions. In computer science, we write programs to accomplish some task, and then attempt to show that the program does in fact do what is intended. In philosophy, we look at big questions and build arguments for answers through logic. In both cases, we study the subject by looking at important past work (whether algorithms or philosophical arguments), hoping to improve our own skills at solving new problems.
