You’ll hear the term Bayes or Bayesian come up a lot in data science, but this video explores the theory with tennis balls and a table.
Here’s a curated list of articles on Bayesian methods and networks.

The next time someone tells you that math has no practical application, tell them about the solved mysteries mentioned in this video.
In this video, Siraj Raval explores how key reinforcement learning algorithms help explain how the human brain works, specifically through the lens of the neurotransmitter known as ‘dopamine’.
These algorithms have been used to help train everything from autopilot systems for airplanes, to video game bots. TD-Learning, Rescorla-Wagner, Kalman Filters, and Bayesian Learning, all in one go!
Julia Galef outlines the most important principles of thinking like a Bayesian.
