Ostrich Algorithm

Last updated Jan 1, 2023 Edit Source

Ignoring potential problems on the basis that they may be exceedingly rare. It is named after the  ostrich effect which is defined as “to stick one’s head in the sand and pretend there is no problem”. It is used when it is more cost-effective to allow the problem to occur than to attempt its prevention.
