Professor Risk

If you are still reading the blog, I became aware today of this clip, posted on YouTube (along with several related items), and this blog, which is on the general topic of uncertainty (probability) and risk…the same as the topic of the course. Note in particular this article from the blog, which discusses some of the things we talked about when we were talking about criminal trials.

The star of the video clip is Professor David Spiegelhalter, a well-known Bayesian statistician from Britain.
