“Understanding Science” – Lecture 2 – Bayes’ Theorem

March 18th, 2012 Posted in Education, General Science

I’ve just uploaded the second in my lecture series called “Understanding Science”. This one is on the topic of Bayes’ Theorem.

Many people have never heard of this fundamentally important rule, yet it lies at the very core of our understanding of evidence and probability. In fact, I would say it’s probably the most important equation in all of physics.

The lecture should be accessible by anyone interested enough to learn. And I really think it’s important. I’ll start working on lecture 3 (on the subject of the Scientific Method) very soon.
