Hrm, this morning I got a letter from the NWO asking me to review a grant proposal. "Gnu World Odor?" I wondered. No.pe - Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research). mrowe, is this your doink? Or mazbe I should ask Arwen or Magenta?

Today, I gave my CIS 990 (Knowledge Based Systems and Cognitive Modeling) class their last paper review assignment: to read some quotes from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detective Sherlock Holmes (taken from the short stories and novels. In lieu of the usual synopsis and critique, I asked them to find evidence supporting one side or the other of the following questions:


  • Does Holmes tend to favor logical or probabilistic representation and reasoning? Discuss how his language of discourse facilitates uncertain reasoning.

  • Does Holmes tend to favor inductive or deductive (analytical) inference? Discuss how himself describes his method of theory formation.

  • How does Holmes formulate and apply bias in hypothesis space search, belief revision, and constraint-based reasoning?



Ojevind might like the following quote:
I have investigated many crimes, but I have never yet seen one which was committed by a flying creature.

Well, that would seem to put dragonks, harpies, and 'rogs beyond the pale. *nirg*



Regarding Buffy Season 7, Episode 20 ("Touched"):

Kennedy owes the pun fund a bint, "a capella" montage vert sinteresting, Buffy demonstrates that she's got the celerity and the trask, big gril liek yew shouldn't be afraid of a lille boom-boom. Oh, and Spike's dialogue is getting better than ever.

(I mean taht in a manly sorta waz.)

NWO
I asked one of the researchers* here at Unseen University: according to her, NWO reviewers are selected by the person who writes the proposal, so the person who wrote that NWO-proposal named you as one of their reviewers, and then neglected to tell you.


*the scary thing is that she thought she knew your name from somewhere.

She may well have, though I don't think she's doing anything for our Manhattan Proj project in Manhattan. Was it cahtually someone from our institute or from the Math Dept. in general?
