In Experiments We Trust: From Intuit to Harrah’s Casinos

Loveman earned a Ph.D. in economics at MIT and went on to become CEO, president, and chairman of Caesars Entertainment, owner of Harrah's casinos and other resorts worldwide. In MIT circles, Loveman is famous for saying that while theft is a firing offense at Caesars, so too is running an experiment without a control group. (See our conversation from last April with MIT Sloan's Erik Brynjolfsson, “The 4 Ways IT is Driving Innovation.”)

Charlie Munger, the billionaire business partner of Warren Buffett, frequently tells the story below to illustrate how to distinguish real knowledge from pretend knowledge.

The Two Types of Knowledge: The Max Plank/Chauffeur Test

At the 2007 Commencement to the USC Law School, Munger explained it this way: I frequently tell the apocryphal story about how Max Planck, after he won the Nobel Prize, went around Germany giving the same standard lecture on the new quantum mechanics.Over time, his chauffeur memorized the lecture and said, “Would you mind, Professor Planck, because it's so boring to stay in our routine, if I gave the lecture in Munich and you just sat in front wearing my chauffeur's hat?”

Planck said, “Why not?” And the chauffeur got up and gave this long lecture on quantum mechanics. After which a physics professor stood up and asked a perfectly ghastly question. My IRB Nightmare. [Epistemic status: Pieced together from memory years after the event.

My IRB Nightmare

I may have mis-remembered some things or gotten them in the wrong order. Aside from that – and the obvious jokes – this is all true. I’m being deliberately vague in places because I don’t want to condemn anything specific without being able to prove anything.] September 2014. Rationing in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia. Civilian rationing: A shopkeeper cancels the coupons in a British housewife's ration book in 1943 Rationing was introduced temporarily by the British government several times during the 20th century, during and immediately after a war.[1][2] At the start of the Second World War in 1939, the United Kingdom imported 20 million long tons (20 Mt) of food per year, including about 70% of its cheese and sugar, nearly 80% of fruits and about 70% of cereals and fats.

The U.K. also imported more than 50% of its meat and relied heavily on imported feed to support its domestic meat production. The civilian population of the country was about 50 million.[3] It was one of the principal strategies of the Germans to attack shipping bound for Britain, restricting British industry and potentially starving the nation into submission.

How Aristotle Created the Computer - The Atlantic

In fact, it is better understood as a history of ideas, mainly ideas that emerged from mathematical logic, an obscure and cult-like discipline that first developed in the 19th century. Mathematical logic was pioneered by philosopher-mathematicians, most notably George Boole and Gottlob Frege, who were themselves inspired by Leibniz’s dream of a universal “concept language,” and the ancient logical system of Aristotle.

Mathematical logic was initially considered a hopelessly abstract subject with no conceivable applications.

Chapter 7: Science and Technology: Public Attitudes and Understanding - Public Knowledge About S&T. Importance of Scientific Literacy Understanding Scientific Terms and Concepts Understanding the Scientific Process Technological Literacy Belief in Pseudoscience Surveys conducted in the United States and Europe reveal that many citizens do not have a firm grasp of basic scientific facts and concepts, nor do they have an understanding of the scientific process.

In addition, belief in pseudoscience (an indicator of scientific illiteracy) seems to be widespread among Americans and Europeans. Studies also suggest that not many Americans are technologically literate. Importance of Scientific Literacy Scientific literacy in the United States (and in other countries) is fairly low. Supervised learning: predicting an output variable from high-dimensional observations — scikit-learn 0.18.1 documentation.

The problem solved in supervised learning Supervised learning consists in learning the link between two datasets: the observed data X and an external variable y that we are trying to predict, usually called “target” or “labels”.

Why the foundations of physics have not progressed for 40 years. I'll take a shot at trying to answer some of your questions: 1.

Spotlight for Career Services Professionals Career services practitioners should advise their college students seeking full-time employment after graduation to craft a well-written resume.

Why? In part, because employers responding to NACE’s Job Outlook 2019 survey said they will seek evidence of solid written communication skills on their candidates’ resumes. When NACE asked employers participating in its Job Outlook 2019 survey which skills and qualities—beyond a strong GPA—they most want to see on students’ resumes, more than four out of five indicated written communication skills, making it the most sought-after attribute this year.

Open Logic Project. Demonhauntedworld. 2 April 2009 - Robot scientist becomes first machine to discover new scientific knowledge. Related links External links Share this page: Sets a cookie 2 April 2009 Scientists funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) have created a Robot Scientist which the researchers believe is the first machine to have independently discovered new scientific knowledge. The robot, called Adam, is a computer system that fully automates the scientific process.

Prof Ross King, who led the research at Aberystwyth University, said: "Ultimately we hope to have teams of human and robot scientists working together in laboratories". The scientists at Aberystwyth University and the University of Cambridge designed Adam to carry out each stage of the scientific process automatically without the need for further human intervention.
