That chart labels days to two decimal places. Harrumph!
Oh yeah! Everyone should do that right now. That thing that you just said.
One of the benefits of receiver operating characteristics is that the method generates a curve, not a spot on a chart. Sadly omitted from this article. You use this to choose an optional cut point on the continuous measure depending on the positive and negative utilities of the outcomes. You could easily create an algorithm to do this.
Nothing much to do with AI though. Intermediate statistics.
One in thirty three US citizens are incarcerated.
I don't understand it beyond the general principles.
"an upgrade from Office 2007 would improve everyone's productivity".
I agreed with everything else, but this. How on earth would productivity be increased by upgrading Office? Most clinical records are (pretty much) plain text, and so they should be.
Ahhhh. Maplin. :((
Surely the hash values or 'PhotoDNA' (©️Microsoft) of images at risk of revenge posting can be obtained without them actually going anywhere?
You stay on the Daily Mail website for more than four minutes?
Even then, even there, nobody said "dang".
Did the bots just break, or were they converging on an analogue of the Morse code where the words are used (a la caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland) to mean something different to the conventionally ascribed meanings?
"please make sure you use all the doors!"
Introduces error, and is a slur on the genius. The canal was designed to be 110 feet wide and 20 feet deep. NOW you can add metric equivalents in parentheses if needed.
Because it matters.
"... a choice designed to help people take advantage of the most secure, and most productive Windows"
Notice there is no claim to be the most secure and productive Operating System?
I've seen NCIS. Those terr'sts are hacking into allsorts of 'mercan 'mainframes'. And they have spiffy GUIs on their state of the art hackware. A big green box pops up that says "hack successful!"
Using caps on El Reg has an effect contrary to the effect you desire.
You see the real problem here is that no-one can tell if this is irony or a genuine 24 carat spittle-flecked-monitor rant.
I have NEVER had an accident. Go me!
I’ll bet he bloody did.
Were any of the Voms El Reg neck-fillers?
I beg to differ. Very interesting reading.
Carry on lads.
Its true. It is skewed. There are more people of below mean IQ. There are more ways of being intellectually disabled than there are of being intellectually gifted.
An altogether more satisfying Reg headline would then arise.
I just love it.
Cruft is not sticky and oozy. It's sort of flaky, whiskery and dusty.
Oooh! Post not found. Que pasa?
I don't understand. We've all seen the advert. They have a huge Minority Report style room thing with touch screens and stuff. From here they can track down criminals wherever they are in the world. I feel so much safer running Windows in the knowledge that team and tech are dedicated to crime busting.
Come to think of it though, I haven't seen any reports of how many baddies they catch each week. That's a bit odd.
Is a novel use of the word 'magnitude'
To put the results in context, if performance was expressed as a standard score (like IQs) with a mean of 100 for the no IT group, the wasters with their tablets and laptops averaged 97.
This is a good example of confusing statistical with real world significance.
...confusing barn doors with shed-loads. Former area, latter volume.
Affectionately and universally known as "Dabbo"
I hope he's still going. Either way, I shall raise a glass to him in couple of minutes.
Leonard, is that sarcasm?
...kind of Minority Report thing?
... sounds interesting. Where was it published?
Also, a metric relating to threats on platform A has no relevance to risk reduction of platform B, unless one is choosing between platforms on the basis of number of threats.
In fact, sharing such metrics could increase risky behaviour by encouraging false subjective probability and potential harm re platform B based on an irrelevant comparison of unrelated threats.
I do risk assessment. Of humans.
... A bigger boy told me to do it.
.... that all the evidence is that many health workers forget to wash their hands when they should. Not a new problem, but something that has been harming patients for 50 plus years. (Difficult to take it further back because of course cross infection wasn't so widely understood.)
Ironically, many years ago, I crushed some of my fingers when I was playing a very minor role in a hand washing research project. No connection between the two, just a coincidence. The nurse who dressed the wounds didn't wash her hands or use aseptic technique. She got very cross when I commented on this.
The point is, this isn't just washing your hands before dinner, or after you've had a crap, it is washing after every physical contact with every patient, over again, all day long. And people don't do it.
Good.... But how about
"Buy Havoc and let drip the blobs of gore"
It even sounds like a Reg headline.
I'm pretty impressed. I'd love to know exactly how the software determined a test was in progress, and what it then did. Where did the software live? Who put it there? Who ordered it? Who agreed to it? Who knew?
acquires a whole new meaning.
The text the police refer to as being consent to be recorded for the purposes of their trial would to most appear to be consent to appear in videos and photographs taken as part of the festival itself.
Most are happy with that. My daughter was delighted to see her elbow appear in crowd shot.
To use this form of words is disingenuous and exploits an obvious red herring. I don't think this would stand up as properly informed consent.
I wonder how much they paid what nobs to come up with such toe-curlingly bad names?
They inspire images of light hearted, trivial, 'let's hope this works' kind of financial transactions.
I much prefer the staid, boring reliable and secure kind.
Is a packet? ( in this instance?)
Ah. OK. Sorry. My mistake.
And there's me thinking those "ha ha ha" sounds coming out of my mouth meant that I find it funny. Perhaps we should alert everyone else who is similarly mistaken?
Could take a while.
Keeping a range of Win OSs going for software testing is a pain. I use 95 first and often, then Vista, then 7.
If I could rent 10 for the afternoon, that would be great. Returned unscratched and with a full tank.
... or ... oh dear, oh dear... Have I just broken the car analogy law?
seems like it ought to be a deterrent, but research on delayed punishment shows that it isn't, particularly when the odds of getting caught are relatively low. Long sentences only reduce recidivism by virtue of preventing crime during imprisonment, the costs are high, as is the post imprisonment recidivism.
Physical punishment appeals to victims, and those with coercive and authoritarian personality traits, but that confuses retribution with deterrence. The fantasy that if you can just hurt someone enough he or she will stop offending is just that, a fantasy.
I have no beef with imprisonment, although prisons are ill equipped for reducing recidivism - so let's be clear why we punish offenders, and not pretend it will reduce offending.
Well as I live and breathe.... Edna Welthorpe!
