Dice World: An exploration of probability, statistics and randomness

Speakers: Brian Clegg

This fascinating exploration of probability, statistics and randomness explains how chaos and randomness are often behind the realities of everyday life. We learn how to toss a head ten times in a row, how to make predictions with impossible accuracy, why people volunteer to give up thousands of pounds for no good reason, and recreate a game show that left the woman with the world's highest IQ being reviled by a whole list of academics... until they discovered she was right.

Refreshments available from 18:30.
