In tudays zoom discussion we talked a lot about the artifact that we have to deliver at the end of the study.
So I did some inquiry about the word and its definition:
german wikipedia: "scientifically worthless..."
"In diagnostics, an artifact is an apparent, but in fact unintentionally artificially induced causal relationship, for example, due to errors in data collection, evaluation, documentation, or interpretation.
Artifacts are products or phenomena created by human or technical influence. They are scientifically worthless because they say nothing about the actual object of investigation, but are merely a source of diagnostic error. "
english wikipedia: "error in the perception..."
"In natural science and signal processing, an artifact or artefact is any error in the perception or representation of any information introduced by the involved equipment or technique(s)."
that makes it interesting for me!
