Bayesianism in five minutes (by Martin Poulter)

Posted by Martin Poulter on 29 July 2010

The talks from the second Ignite Bristol evening were filmed by the Bristol-based Films@59 company and are now being put online. The evening started with my talk, “What is Bayesianism and why should you care?”

At my previous Ignite talk I was too ambitious in what I tried to pack into five minutes. For this second talk, I ditched the bullet points and concentrated on getting one basic idea across.

Keep an eye on the Ignite Bristol Youtube channel for more talks, which were all well-presented and very thought-provoking.

If you want to give a talk at Ignite Bristol yourself, the next date is 31 October 2010, the venue is once again the Tobacco Factory Theatre and the proposal form is that way.

The Worst And Saddest Of Yahoo! Answers

Posted by Martin Poulter on 29 July 2010

This collection includes such face-smacking classics as “Why are there school? is a point to it?” and “I caught my son having sex with a guy and think he might be gay. Is there a definitive way I can tell?” Some are likely trolls, but there’s some real human failure in these captured questions.
