    "Algorithmic information theory (AIT) is the result of putting Shannon's information theory and Turing's computability theory into a cocktail shaker and shaking vigorously", says G.J. Chaitin, one of the fathers of this theory of complexity and randomness, which is also known as Kolmogorov complexity. The Book In Three Or More Sentences: The title Fooled by Randomness refers to our tendency to mistake luck for skills and to our misguided conviction that access to more information means higher success ration. Nassim Nicholas Taleb shatters the theory that .

    This book is aimed at the trouble with trying to learn about probability. A story of the misconceptions and difficulties civilization overcame in progressing toward probabilistic thinking, "Randomness" is also a skillful account of what makes the science of probability so daunting in our own day/5(2). Feb 09,  · I used to reflect on the underestimated role of randomness for example and I’m glad for Taleb’s work which I can now refer to. Finally, I really enjoyed Taleb also says randomness cannot affect your behavior. That’s you and under your full control. Don’t 5/5.

    Mar 09,  · Part of the 52 in 52 Book Summary Series. Last year I read a book every week for 52 weeks. Here are the personal journal entries I used to record the best lessons from each book. This week is Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in . Dec 21,  · Randomness has an incredibly powerful place in our culture. If you think about it, you can see it driving the algorithms that run our information economy, patterns that make up the traffic of our cities, and on over to the way the stars and galaxies formed.

"Professor Calude has produced a first-rate exposition of up-to-date work in information and randomness." D.S. Bridges, Canterbury University, co-author, with Errett Bishop, of Constructive Analysis. Randomness is the lack of pattern or predictability in events. A random sequence of events, symbols or steps has no order and does not follow an intelligible pattern or combination.

Individual random events are by definition unpredictable, but in many cases the frequency of different outcomes over numerous events (or "trials") is predictable. Oct 09,  · Information and Randomness: An Algorithmic Perspective (Texts in Theoretical Computer Science.
