The world around us can be overwhelming most of the time, especially during global pandemics and with social turbulence occurring on a daily basis.
When we think about how our minds comprehend the vast amounts of information around us, one of the cognitive tools our minds use is pattern recognition. We hear a lot about pattern recognition in Artificial intelligence, this is because programmers are attempting to mimic human mental cognition.
This so-called pattern recognition, from a User Experience and Psychological perspective is called Heuristics. A Heuristic can be seen at play in almost all walks of human life.
