The new WIN special interest society, HEURISTIQ Society was born and the supervisor is Masaaki Yamauchi.
The name “HEURISTIQ” comes from the combination of the first seven letters of the English word “HEURISTIC“ and the IQ component.
“HEURISTIC“ is a technical term of Learning Psychology, Neuroscience and Computer science,
However, the HEURISTIQ society is limited in relation to Cognitive Science, Leaning psychology and Neuroscience.
The definition of “HEURISTIC” by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heuristic :
Heuristic (/hjʉˈrɪstɨk/; Greek: “Εὑρίσκω”, “find” or “discover”) refers to experience-based techniques for problem solving, learning, and discovery that give a solution which is not guaranteed to be optimal. Where the exhaustive search is impractical, heuristic methods are used to speed up the process of finding a satisfactory solution via mental shortcuts to ease the cognitive load of making a decision. Examples of this method include using a rule of thumb, an educated guess, an intuitive judgment, stereotyping, or common sense.
In more precise terms, heuristics are strategies using readily accessible, though loosely applicable, information to control problem solving in human beings and machines.
