Poetry book sales are bigger this year than ever before, and the form is ‘about to reach many, many more people,’ says the head of the Forward Arts Foundation. Here’s a diagnosis of the year in poetry – and a prescription for years to come “What is more precise than precision? Illusion.”. False precision (also called overprecision, fake precision, misplaced precision and spurious precision) occurs when numerical data are presented in a manner that implies better precision than is justified; since precision is a limit to accuracy (in the ISO definition of accuracy), this often leads to overconfidence in the accuracy, named precision bias. The participants severely overestimated the precision of the regression predictions. Again, this is the illusion of predictability. It’s a psychological phenomenon where the apparent exactness of the regression equation gives the impression that the predictions are more precise than they are in reality.

Sep 09,  · The decimal system gives an illusion of precision. Mathematics itself is not always precise. The area of a circle is arrived at by multiplying Pi by the radius squared. But Pi is an infinite decimal. So the area can only be approximated. The artist’s eye and brush are more accurate than any scientist’s slide rule, because they depict what.

Notwithstanding occasional attempts at constructing a "pan-African" consciousness, the peoples of Africa, for example, are united by very little more than a commonCited by: Significant figures are those figures that convey information about the accuracy of the measurement. The measurement must be recorded in such a way as to show the degree of precision to which it was made, no more, no less. Calculations based on the measured quantities can have no more (or no less) precision than the measurements themselves. Apr 27,  · Arbitrary Taxonomies and The Illusion of Precision (Pt 2) 27 04 In my first post on this subject, I made a fuss about how we fool ourselves into thinking we’ve made imprecise things precise by assigning decimal scores without numerical data and attempting to rank in order more objects than we can even think about at once.
