algorithm - concrete examples of heuristics - Stack Overflow
Here are real two examples of this heuristic in use
Grand amounts of knowledge - For example, how many different sorting strategies do you know? I remember a few taught in school like bubble, shell, quick, heap, and merge, so there is the chance that by absorbing ridiculous amounts of knowledge you could have the list of various heuristics to try to solve a problem. Example of heuristics here would include being greedy, divide and conquer, dynamic programming, and use of specialized data structures. In some cases, just knowing a ton of stuff that be enough to think in a box bigger than someone initially thought. ;-)
See Figure 3 for an example of heuristics
An example of heuristics for a special situation; in this case, for websites on mobile phones. We're not saying these are the best; just good examples.
