Decoding the maths of society

Run time: 13:00 – 14:00

Bayesian statistics is a powerful tool that is part of everyday life, but we might not be aware of the impact it has. From perfecting spam filters, to predicting weather patterns, analysing clinical trials to the personalised recommendations we receive. 

The reality is that statistics surround us, often hidden in plain sight but aren’t acknowledged, celebrated or openly discussed.

Join Sophie Carr, Director of Bays Consulting for her Presidential Address for Mathematics and enter the exciting world of Bayesian statistics, exploring its effect on your life, from the often-hidden bias in data all around us to the decisions that are made for us.
