When I was asked to reflect on the role of women in science, philosophy, and research for International Women’s Day, I was immediately taken back to an A-level history lesson at the age of 18.  We were lucky enough to have a teacher who inspired us with tales of his previous life working in the […]

I haven’t used a gapingvoid® cartoon for a bit in a blog post, but this one could not have been more appropriate for my theme of today, which deals with both conflict and the AI issue; hence, my playing with the A and the I in the title.  The other reason is the pattern-based QuickSense […]
