1 - About

As digital computers are deterministic, truly randomness within a computer doesn't exist.

Something random should be unpredictable. We shouldn’t be able to predict the next value of the sequence

It turns out to be mathematically impossible to generate true random numbers using a digital computer, but it is possible to generate pseudo-random numbers

A truly random distribution is uniform (not skewed) and the distribution of the error from the mean is normal.
