Almost all of the time someone in the media or a cloud / big data company's PR department says 'algorithms' these days, they don't mean algorithms, they mean 'heuristics'.

Heuristics are rough rules of thumb producing approximately useful results.
Algorithms are deterministic mathematical functions guaranteeing a specific result.
