Sometimes a problem is so difficult to solve that a computer can’t do it in a reasonable amount of time. In these cases, you can switch to using heuristics to find reasonable answers in reasonable amounts of time.
Last night, we hosted a free learning session on this topic called Applying Heuristics to Solve Complex Problems. In case you missed it, we’re sharing the recording below. In it, you’ll hear from Curtis Schlak, our VP of Professional Development, as he dives into using probabilistic heuristics to solve problems feasibly unsolvable through other methods.
This topic of discussion was pulled from Week 5 of our Algorithms + Data Structures Professional Development course. Learn more about the course here, including a breakdown of what’s covered during each course session.
