Human Mind

a: Human MInd ~
b: Computer NOT!

What: "People who believe that the mind can be replicated on a computer tend to explain the mind in terms of a computer. When theorizing about the mind, especially to outsiders but also to one another, defenders of artificial intelligence (AI) often rely on computational concepts." --

Artillery Targeting And Experimental Design

a: Picking the magnitude of an assay variable ~
b: Artillery targeting

What: A typical scenario for both processes goes like this; A variables' magnitude is picked, 1 short, 1 long and 1 in the middle. The study space is defined by the edges and a middle. A good way to test an assay is to determine the values at the extremes. Likewise with an artillery shot. In theory, the math should get you on the target with one shot. But due to variations in wind speed, humidity and other factors, a little empirical range finding is often required. Hopefully, in both cases, you can hit the target. For some reason, 3 is the magic number.

Handwriting Analysis(sensory Evaluation)

a: Handwriting analyst ~
b: a wine connoisseur

What: "A handwriting analyst is like a wine connoisseur. A wine expert who really knows what he's talking about is a highly valuable person with lots of experience and knowledge. However, it's hard to be sure which wine connoisseurs are actually experts and which are faking it" .... The unifying idea is sensory evaluation.
