It's a cryptic clue. Do you know who Mycroft is?

Mycroft? You mean Sherlock's brother, who was the smarter of the two, but too lazy to do anything?

I'm not sure my brother would be happy to be described as lazy

Mycroft did his analysis sitting in an armchair. Physically not much but mentally a tour de force.

Oopsies! I didn't think of it that way.

Then your brother, who's in the University of Edinburgh, is working on a mathematical fact checker?

That sounds really awesome.
