Something that I didn't mention in my…Continue

However, from a scientific standpoint, "quantum neural network" is a very poor name choice for what is being alluded to here.
Artificial Neural Networks, often called "Neural Nets" for short, are supposed to…Continue

Simpson's paradox is a recurring nightmare for all statisticians overseeing a clinical trial for a medicine. It is possible that if they leave out a certain "confounding" variable from a study, the study's conclusion on whether a medicine is effective or not, might be, without measuring that confounding variable, the opposite of what it would have been had that variable been measured. Statisticians have to enlist expert…
