The page you found gives a definition of it, but it doesn't say what it is, or why it's useful, or why your friends would be interested in it. Maybe your friends are all wearing Bayes' Theorem T-shirts, and you're feeling left out. Maybe you see the theorem, and you understand the theorem, and you can use the theorem, but you can't understand why your friends and/or research colleagues seem to think it's the secret of the universe.“Challenges” are viral dares and pranks that You Tubers film themselves doing.They’re generally goofy — remember the “Mannequin Challenge,” in which teenagers created elaborate tableaux while frozen in place? Usually, they arise virally, spread all over Twitter and You Tube, and then disappear.The Hot Water Challenge, however, doesn’t appear to be new, or really even very viral.
The intent is to convey, not abstract rules for manipulating numbers, but what the numbers mean, and why the rules are what they are (and cannot possibly be anything else).
Maybe you understand it in theory, but every time you try to apply it in practice you get mixed up trying to remember the difference between belongs in the numerator or the denominator.
Why does a mathematical concept generate this strange enthusiasm in its students? While there are a few existing online explanations of Bayes' Theorem, my experience with trying to introduce people to Bayesian reasoning is that the existing online explanations are too abstract.
As the popularity of open source grows, it's important to remember that with growth comes complexity and that being involved in open source comes with the mindset that collaboration makes the world a better place.
It's not surprising that men and women value different things in the workplace, but employers aren't necessarily paying attention to the details.
Four months ago, 8-year-old Ki’ari Pope was apparently dared to drink boiling water through a straw by her cousin, after they watched a video in which a You Tuber pretended to drink boiling water through a straw.
