Meta-heuristics or meta-heuristic algorithms are evolutionary algorithms which are a part of "Soft Computing" and Soft computing itself is a form of AI. But what are these algorithms?

One instance or example of these algorithms is Genetic Algorithm which I've written about previously. Basically these algorithms are designed to search a space, and usually the goal or the objective is an optimum answer. The optimum answer is usually expressed as a form of a minimum value or maximum value.

I'm well into my 5th semester in college and I've been lucky to choose the best combination of courses. This semester as planned, I'm taking Artificial Intelligence and Introduction to Databases. Soft computing is a term that means using inexact methods to solve NP Complete problems. The components of which include Genetic Algorithms(as a method in Evolutionary computation), which is another course I'm taking.

In terms of solving problems, any thing or guideline that guides towards solving a problem, and not an instance of a problem is called an "Algorithm". Put it this way, any steps you follow in your brain to calculate divisions, is an algorithm, because division is a problem, but say, dividing 21 by 7 or 100 by 30 are problem instances, and the exact steps you follow to solve these problems, are instances, not algorithms.

I know, you might have never heard of it, and yeah, it isn't a thing. But it is about to be. This is something I've been thinking about the entire summer, and I'm gonna start working on it soon.

Basically I have a very strange and unique taste of things when it comes to my major, and the field I've been most interested in since the age of 4, which is computers and Computer Science. For those who don't know, there's a difference between the two while they are connected. I did enjoy things like programming, solving problems and even for a while working with web services and servers, but Computer Science or CS, is far beyond that. Basically the fundamentals of CS has roots within logic and mathematics, and not much calculus, but rather set theory, matrices, algebra and analysis.

Well, in a few days, my 4th semester in college is going to begin, and I've picked some very interesting new courses for this semester.

The third semester came and went so quickly, it gives me a headache just thinking about it.

Data Mining is an interesting course I took this past semester, and really enjoyed. Today I want to talk about it a little, what it actually is, and how it's done. Basically data mining brings together subjects like machine learning, statistical analysis and basic programming in order to analyze data and obtain information from what is called a data set. A data set can be a spreadsheet, a database, an ASCII file or really any source of data, which is gathered into a single form, which is called a data warehouse.
