Randomness and Chance

Randomness, chance, probability.

How much of our daily lives do we control trough planning and how much is the result of the toss of the dice? To what extent are we all gamblers just getting through each day?

Are our brains built to understand randomness or do we instinctively impose patterns where none exist?

All these questions and more will be answered at this meetup.... or not.

    I'm aware of Bayes in the context of mathematics, and I know that Bayesian theories are important in modern AI work - but I don't think I could do the concept justice. Truthfully I'd love to understand the concept better myself. Bring what you know!

    Caleob,
    How much are you going to be talking about the nonintuitive side of probability? And are you going to be talking about Bayesian reasoning at all?
