Notes

  • A heuristic is any #problem-solving approach that employs a practical method that is not guaranteed to be optimal, perfect, or rational but is sufficient for reaching an immediate, short-term goal or approximation.

  • You can use heuristic methods to find a satisfactory solution where finding an optimal solution is impossible or impractical.

  • Examples that employ heuristics:

    • Trial and error.
    • Rule of thumb.
    • Educated guess.
