Zack Voulgaris, data scientist and author of the books Data Scientist and Julia for Data Science, will provide an overview to heuristics and how to apply them in data science. Although you will not be an expert in heuristics by the end of this video, you will having a greater awareness as to where to apply heuristics in your data science specialty. Heuristics can be used in all types of algorithms, such as those for searching or optimizing. The relationships between heuristics and artificial intelligence is covered, along with the problems that can be solved using heuristics. The video concludes with a list of next steps to learn more about heuristics.
