1 - About

How likely is this prediction to be true?

Machines are less arrogant than humans, and they acknowledge uncertainty in their code by returning a probability distribution or confidence interval of possible answers instead of claiming to know the precise result for every input. Erik Meijer - Making Money Using Math

Thomas Bayes anticipated the need for dealing with uncertainty and formulated Bayes's rule.

A scientist is never certain. … We absolutely must leave room for doubt or there is no progress and there is no learning. Richard Feynman
