  1. Product Rule: Bayesian Reasoning • P(A &B) = P(A|B) * P(B)

  2. Product Rule: Bayesian Reasoning • P(A &B) = P(A|B) * P(B) Shorthand for P(A=true & B=true) = P(A=true | B=true) * P(B=true)

  3. Product Rule: Bayesian Reasoning • P(A &B) = P(A|B) * P(B) = P(B|A) * P(A)

  4. Product Rule: Bayesian Reasoning • P(A &B) = P(A|B) * P(B) = P(B|A) * P(A) • P(A|B) = P(A &B) / P(B)

  5. Rev. Thomas Bayes (1702-1761) Product Rules: Bayesian Reasoning • P(A|B) = P(A &B) / P(B) • P(A &B) = P(A|B) * P(B) = P(B|A) * P(A) Bayes’ Rule: • P(A|B) = P(A &B) / P(B) • = P(B|A) * P(A) / P(B)

  6. [C]onsidera situation in which painstaking survey work has previously established that in the general population only 1% of subjects abuse a certain dangerous drug. Suppose that a person is randomly selected from [the] population for a drug test and the test yields a positive result. Suppose that the test has a 99% hit rate and a 5% false alarm rate. [How certain are we that the person is abusing the drug?] Bayesian Reasoning

  8. Online commentators cited my mother as an example of why no parent should hire a nanny. (In fact, parents and other family members are responsible for nearly eighty percent of cases involving shaken-baby syndrome.) Bayesian Reasoning

  12. Thou shalt not answer questionnaires Or quizzes upon World-Affairs, Nor with compliance
 Take any test. Thou shalt not sit
 With statisticians nor commit
 A social science. - W.H. Auden (1907-1973)

  13. The separation of state and church must be complemented by the separation of state and science, that most recent, most aggressive, and most dogmatic religious institution. - Paul Feyerabend (1924-1994)
