Bayesian Probability & computers

So I got totally entrances reading this C|Net news article about Bayesian probability and its new-found popularity in programming circles. Oddly, this is one of the few math theories that I actually had heard of (not being in any way shape or form a math guy). What’s nice about this article (and I won’t make claims for it’s veracity) is that it dumbs it all down into a nice, understandable package for plebes like me.

So if you’re at all interested in how why software keeps doing that, this might be an answer.
