If I ask you what the scientists searching for the Covid-19 vaccine and the nerds trying to code their AI (Artificial Intelligence) have in common with how you see the world, you would think absolutely nothing. Or just that we are all humans, stick in 2020.

Yet we are all, in some shape or form, using Bayes’ Theorem.

The only difference resides in scientists or AI specialists knowing how they implement Bayes’ theorem in their workflow. At the same time, most of us are not aware of how we are using consciously or not Bayes’ theorem in our everyday life.

Most importantly, we are not seeing how powerful it can be to willingly understand and apply the formula in our lives and the enormous positive impacts we can reap.

Bayes’ theorem is a formula for probabilities. And a little disclaimer before we go further. I am not at all good at probabilities. I am quite the opposite.

In engineering studies, I was the valedictorian for our probability and statistics test, but from the end. So just bear that in mind while I try to explain my understanding of this theorem and how I apply it to my own life to update my worldview based on new evidence I receive from the universe.

Before we go further, I recommend watching this video, explaining Bayes’ theorem better than I will ever do:
