Cause And Effect: The Revolutionary New Statistical Test That Can Tease Them Apart — The Physics arXiv Blog. One of the most commonly repeated maxims in science is that correlation is not causation.

Cause And Effect: The Revolutionary New Statistical Test That Can Tease Them Apart — The Physics arXiv Blog

And there is no shortage of examples demonstrating why. One of the most famous is the case of hormone replacement therapy, which was studied by numerous epidemiologists at the end of the last century. These studies showed that women who took hormone replacement therapy had less chance of developing heart disease. Naturally, doctors suggested that hormone replacement therapy somehow protected against heart disease.

That turned out to be an erroneous conclusion. In the absence of controlled trials, statisticians have widely assumed that it is impossible to determine cause and effect from an observed correlation alone. ‎ Comparison of C Sharp and Java.

Palo Alto, la Mecque high-tech

Les habitants de cette ville située au sud de San Francisco allumaient des cierges dans ce qui ressemblait à un mausolée improvisé, écrivaient des messages sur le trottoir, déposaient des pommes et se recueillaient devant le portrait de leur héros, mort le 5 octobre 2011. Aux autochtones se sont substitués des touristes du monde entier, transformant le fondateur d'Apple en rock-star prête à rejoindre Jim Morrison et John Lennon au panthéon informel de ceux qui ont disparu trop tôt. Dans toute autre ville que Palo Alto, la demeure serait restée en l'état, figée, pour se transformer en musée sauvage. Mais ici les patrons et inventeurs de la nouvelle technologie vont et passent. Au 2101 Waverley Avenue, des passants s'arrêtent encore. La semaine prochaine : McCloud (Californie). Could These Start-Ups Become the Next Big Thing? Twitter’s new Mid-Market headquarters.

After Austerity. This year’s annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund made clear that Europe and the international community remain rudderless when it comes to economic policy.

After Austerity

Financial leaders, from finance ministers to leaders of private financial institutions, reiterated the current mantra: the crisis countries have to get their houses in order, reduce their deficits, bring down their national debts, undertake structural reforms, and promote growth. Confidence, it was repeatedly said, needs to be restored. It is a little precious to hear such pontifications from those who, at the helm of central banks, finance ministries, and private banks, steered the global financial system to the brink of ruin – and created the ongoing mess.
