The Sparrow Brief



For the history  of Dysology, I have archived the Sparrow Proving file here , just in case it ever gets deleted. This may well be the world's funniest document. Read it with care. Ensure you are securely seated. If you begin a giggling fit please stop reading. Never read aloud in a public space, you may kill other people with uncontrollable laughter. The original Sparrow Brief file is here.


And if you can take any more after that, another unintentionally hilarious time can be had if you would care to enjoy an interview with Misha Norland, author of the Sparrow Proving file. Here

Homeopaths. Are they Psychos?

From:


Need any more proof that homeopathy is useless? We've just got it, so let's finally end this farce (Edzard Ernst)


 "[homeopathy is] a mingled mass of perverse ingenuity, of tinsel erudition, of imbecile credulity, and of artful misinterpretation, too often mingled in practice… with heartless and shameless imposition.”

Google, A.I. and Predictions of Hi-tech Apocalypse: The Exponential Detriment Question

I wonder just how many interesting little cases we have already that confirm our most conservative fear that deep learning A.I. may 'deep learn' to do things that do no benefit humans? By way of one small example, Prof Make Griffiths and I have just published a peer reviewed paper that shows Google's deep-learning autonomous A.I. Rank Brain appears to be preventing humans from using the previously incredibly disruptive Big Data power of using the IDD method in Google Books to bust deeply embedded establishment myths. The paper is here: http://www.mdpi.com/2076-0760/7/4/66

How many such small examples do we need to sum to the probabilities: (1) That (currently) an A.I apocalypse is more likely than not. (2) That an A.I. apocalypse is (currently) imminent? We might call this problem the "Exponential Detriment Question". One thing is for sure. There can be no harm to humans in collecting the necessary data now.

On Richard III and The Nottingham Archive

In October 2016 I used the IDD method to orignally detect a long neglected 1939 translation of the accounts of the Gild of St George at St Peter's Church in Nottingham. That book, a scholarly translation of the orignal medieval documents, builds upon the prior research of others (see Langley et al 2014) into the 15th century Hill v Hylton Court of Chancery case and how it provided a crucial lead towards the discovery of the grave of Richard III in a Leicester car park in 2012. The newly re-discovered self-published book found with IDD (Hodgkinson 1939) establishes that a past Sheriff of Nottingham (Ralph Hill) sued an acting Mayor of Nottingham (Walter Hylton). Both men were in the same gild (guild). That Nottingham gild lent them money to carry out work on the monument for Richard III's tomb. Moreover, rather than make a new monument (according to current knowledge claims) befitting a dead king, it looks like there is now a new historical document evidence-led possibility that such a monument existed already and Hylton was contracted to repair it rather than make the first one himself.
