Definitions for "Bias"
A weight on the side of the ball used in the game of bowls, or a tendency imparted to the ball, which turns it from a straight line.
Having an idea about what the study results will show before the clinical trial is conducted.
the consistent underestimation or overestimation of a true value, because of preconceived notion of the person sampling the population.
A slant; a diagonal; as, to cut cloth on the bias.
Cut slanting or diagonally, as cloth.
In a slanting manner; crosswise; obliquely; diagonally; as, to cut cloth bias.
A leaning of the mind; propensity or prepossession toward an object or view, not leaving the mind indifferent; bent; inclination.
Inclined to one side; swelled on one side.
To incline to one side; to give a particular direction to; to influence; to prejudice; to prepossess.
This term is used to describe a recorders ability to reproduce a tonal range of signal frequencies accurately......BIAS can be set/adjusted on a tape machine, by playing/recording a test tape of test sine wave tones of Low, Mid & High frequencies....then adjusting the record/playback amps on the machine to reproduce the audio range accurately.... Imagine it is like setting the bass midrange & treble of each audio track, so that it does not boost or cut frequencies but reproduces them correctly.
A distortion of the facts. Bias can be hard to detect or measure. It is likely to occur when the sampling frame is inadequate or the response rate is very low.
A high-frequency signal added to analog audio tape to reduce distortion.
The voltage applied to an electrode of an electronic component to establish suitable working conditions.
Applied DC voltage and current to active devices (transistors, FETS, op-amps)
The control voltage and/or current applied to a device that establishes or facilitates proper operation.
Some feature that gives some competitors an advantage over others. Where racecourses are concerned, this could be the left hand side or the right hand side.
To prefer one thing to another and so look at it more favourably. It is possible to do this without knowing it, which is why some trials are designed so that no one knows which patient is having which treatment.
Race tracks and sports venues tend to have advantages. Greyhound traps, one side of a horse racecourse or another may tend to favour. Equally a team playing on a ‘home' pitch may be favoured.
(1) A number added to the binary exponent of a floating-point number so that the exponent field will always be positive. The bias is subtracted when the floating-point value is evaluated. (2) The number of bits to the right of a binary point in a fixed point number See also: gxColorValue, fixed-point number
In a floating-point representation, a value that is subtracted from the represented exponent to get the actual exponent. For single-precision formats, the bias is 127; for double-precision formats, it is 1023; for quad-precision formats, it is 16383. See also biased representation.
Part of the numerical representation used to interpret a fixed-point number. Along with the slope, the bias forms the scaling of the number. Fixed-point numbers can be represented as where the slope can be expressed as See also fixed-point representation, fractional slope, integer, scaling, slope, [Slope Bias
The accelerometer output with no input acceleration present. Bias is a signed quantity usually expressed in units of acceleration.
An ultrasonic signal mixed with the input signal at the... ( more)
DC voltage level at which the AC signal rides. Generally, accelerometer bias has increased over the years so higher vibration values can be measured.
Keywords:  neural, bowl, jack, curve, pseudo
A potential difference which is applied deliberately between two points for the purpose of controlling a circuit
A "pseudo" input of a neural net with any value except zero. Its purpose is to generate different inputs for different input patterns given to the net.
bowls are not always completely spherical. If they were, then curving the bowls around other bowls or putting angles on the delivery would not work. There is a slightly shaped edge on a bowl, and this stops it from rolling in an entirely straight line. Different bowls have different biases. Players must always tell each other which bias they are using prior to delivery
Keywords:  threshold, mu'st, movcpm, ddt, sid
See threshold.
Address value which when added to the origin address of your BIOS module produces lF80H, the address of the BIOS module in the MOVCPM image. There is also a bias value that when added to the BOOT module origin produces 0900H, the address of the BOOT module in the MOVCPM image. You mu'st use these bias values with the R command under DDT or SID" when you patch a CP/M system. If you do not, the patched system may fall to function.
A threshold value for input to a neuron, such that the neuron will not activate ("fire") for input values below that value.
The pattern of treating someone/something differently than others, either positively or negatively.
An indication of whether the device's measured leak rate consistently overestimates (positive bias) or underestimates (negative bias) the actual induced leak rate.
A machine learning term for the means by which a learning system chooses one generalization as opposed to others. A great many generalizations may cover a given set of examples. Trivial criteria such as choosing the most specific or most general description are useless by themselves (the most specific is just the list of positive examples already observed, and the most general is the complement of the negative examples observed), so additional biases are needed for effective learning. Bias may be implicit in a learning algorithm or explicitly stated in rules. Three kinds of bias are feature, syntactic, and preference-ordering. An important point about bias and PBD is that biases designed for data descriptions, actions and control flow help the system infer them more efficiently, but limit what can be learned. Nonetheless, PBD systems can learn procedures that implicitly define concepts they cannot learn explicitly.

Keywords:  unbalanced, sound, view, sided, level
An unbalanced sound level.
One-sided and unbalanced view.
That quality of a measurement device that tends to result in a misrepresentation of what is being measured in a particular direction (Babbie, 2001)
A change in logit values based on the particular agents or objects measured.
The preferential display on a CRS of host carrier flight schedules.
Preference given to flights of one carrier over those of others in the displays of choices on computerized reservations systems,. A practice forbidden in the U.S., Canada and most European countries if the listed carriers pay to appear in a system.

cause to be biased
A sample that is not reflective of the population it is intended to represent. Biases may be caused by unrepresentative recruitment, improper interviewing, poor wording of questions or question sequence, etc.

Proportion of pools with bias out of limits
Bias of technology, either change or difference, refers to a shift towards or away from use of a factor. The exact meaning depends on the definition of neutral used to define absence of bias. Factor bias matters for the effects of technological progress on trade and welfare. Bias of a trade regime refers to whether the structure of protection favors importables or exportables, based on comparing their effective rates of protection. If these are equal, the trade regime is said to be neutral. Bias of growth refers to economic growth through factor accumulation and/or technological progress and whether if favors one sector or another. Growth is said to be export biased if the export sector expands faster than the rest of the economy, import biased if the import-competing sector does so.
A wedge-shaped piece of cloth taken out of a garment (as the waist of a dress) to diminish its circumference.
a fact that affects the accuracy of the data or their interpretation
Bye-ass] Personal preference not based on facts.
When a decision-maker is considered to be predisposed towards an involved party.
Keywords:  startup, offset, zero, target, loaded
The offset value from zero at which a target program is actually loaded into memory. The bias can be set with the startup option.
