Sharon Bertsch McGrayne: The Misrule of Bayes' Rule
Used everywhere from DNA decoding to Homeland Security, Bayes' rule appears to be a straightforward theorem: By updating our initial beliefs with objective new information, we get a new and improved belief. To its adherents, it's an elegant statement about learning from experience. To its opponents, it's subjectivity run amok. Seattleite Sharon Bertsch McGrayne, author of The Theory That Would Not Die, explores the theorem and the obsessions surrounding it, and how it ignited one of the greatest scientific controversies ever. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
