algorithm - concrete examples of heuristics - Stack Overflow
This chapter discusses concepts and terms that professional musicians find useful in preparing for and talking and thinking about expressive performance. An example is “shape,” which, as recent research has shown, is immensely flexible and useful for sharing ideas about how to generate expressive performance without having to specify exactly which sounds might be required. The word is used between musical performers with a high level of mutual understanding, as a way of communicating expressive features that are actually very difficult to articulate in more detail. Further examples of heuristics for musical expression are drawn from a recent interview study of professional musicians, and their implications are discussed. It is argued that this kind of terminology, easily dismissed as superficial or vague, is in fact precisely targeted to the nature of the task and is highly effective in use by musicians.
Example of scarcity heuristic in action.
Here are real two examples of this heuristic in use
Other examples of heuristics that we frequently use are the availability heuristic, Take The Best (TTB) heuristic and the representativeness heuristic.
Real World Examples of How Heuristics Have Been Used Against Us
The use of heuristics can be seen in many places. For example, Wikipedia (2011) describes examples of heuristics in philosophy, law and engineering. Yet, all those are but examples of psychological heuristics, or the use of heuristics in "mental processing" in the fields of philosophy, law and engineering.
