Questions tagged [heuristics]
In AI, the term "heuristic" is used in the context of non-blind (i.e., informed) search and planning: the problem of finding a sequence of actions to find/generate a desired state from an initial state. Heuristics" are problem relaxations of the original problem. They get as input the current state/search node and output the cost of the relaxed solution from there to goal. This heuristic value is then used for search guidance.
