A probability cookbook

Randomness – Probability = Chance

Chance – Randomness = Fate

Fate + God = Predestination

Probability + Epistemology = Types of Randomness

Subjective Probability = Betting + Coherence

Propensity theory = Probability + Animism

Kolmogorov Axioms = Probability – randomness – chance

Probability + Complexity = Cryptography

Chaos + Ignorance = Randomness

Regression: Data = Signal + Noise

Bayesian:
Posterior = Prior  \times Likelihood
Prior + Data  \rightarrow Probability

Probabilitst:
Probability  \rightarrow Frequency

Statistical:
Frequency  \rightarrow Probability

Big Data:
Predictive value  \gg Model simplicity
High dimensions + Fast computers = De chao ordo
