**sample**space (also known as -**biased sample**space, -**biased**generator, or small-bias probability space) is a probability distribution that fools parity functions ... In other words, no parity function can distinguish between a small-bias**sample**space and the uniform distribution with high probability, and hence, small-bias**sample**... The main useful property of small-bias**sample**spaces is that they need far fewer truly random bits than the uniform distribution to fool parities ...Problems Caused By Sampling Bias

“All that a city will ever allow you is an angle on it—an oblique, indirect *sample* of what it contains, or what passes through it; a point of view.”

—Peter Conrad (b. 1948)

“Scientists are human—they’re as *biased* as any other group. But they do have one great advantage in that science is a self-correcting process.”
