  1. Probabilities and knowledge

    2016-01-24

    Probabilities are all relative to knowledge. We cannot know the outcome, without knowing how things work, and we cannot learn that before it has happened.

    The amount of data stored on the web is vast. Traditionally, most of this has been restricted to human interpretation. The next step is the semantic web.
