Heuristic

[computer science] In computer science, artificial intelligence, and mathematical optimization, a heuristic is a technique designed for solving a problem more quickly when classic methods are too slow, or for finding an approximate solution when classic methods fail to find any exact solution. This is achieved by trading optimality, complet...

[engineering] In engineering, heuristics are experience-based methods used to reduce the need for calculations pertaining to equipment size, performance, or operating conditions.

Heuristic

In mathematical programming, this usually means a procedure that seeks an optimal solution but does not guarantee it will find one, even if one exists. It is often used in contrast to an algorithm, so branch and bound would not be considered a heuristic in this sense. In AI, however, a heuristic is an algorithm (with some guarantees) that uses a he...
