PSI vs. Science: New Standards for Old Claims
The controversy around recent experiments in psychic phenomena have created a desperate need for new standards in data analysis. This talk explores Daryl Bem’s experiments in precognition and how new methods may be used to create a more rigorous statistical framework. We’ll examine whether these experiments align with our latest understanding of physics (including quantum mechanics) and extend these concepts to broader skeptical issues.
