#### Algebra for programming [closed]

I am right now studying Linear Algebra. A lot of people say it is important for programming but I can't understand why, since computers perform calculatations so much better than us. My question is: If I become an algebra expert, will it give me an advantage as a professional?

Linear Algebra is widely used in machine learning, signal processing, and computer graphics. If you are to be a professional programmer in one of these fields, knowing linear algebra will likely make a positive difference in your career.
