In this talk, we consider the interaction between hyperbolic geometry and computer science. The general
algorithmic approach of computer science has given a new approach to hyperbolic geometry. This is especially
the case for tilings of the hyperbolic plane. This has given rise to a particular navigation tool, a uniform one which
is valid for infinitely many tilings of the hyperbolic plane. This had an impact on a long-pending open problem
which is now solved. But this has certainly a drawback on computer science itself. A few applications exist and
new ones can be foreseen, especially in computer science itself. There could be applications to biology too. All
these aspects will be discussed in the talk.
