Another great turnout at the DataPhilly meetup last night. Was great to see all you random data nerds!

Hi Corey Chivers,

Thank you for this amazing article.

I have always been fascinated by randomized functions and how they can help us in building models. The use of ”obscure statistics” applied to prediction is very interesting and can sometimes be the most relevant way to understand processes. Moreover, I am still mind blown by the help of “hazardous” which can be sometimes and for a certain “level of knowledge” the best way to predict phenoma induced by unknow laws or to test and improve a model that we are working on.

Bring aleatory to be able to create intended representation is fabulous.

If you’re going to do Monte Carlo integration, realize that the randomness isn’t as important as “good sampling” of your distribution – investigate edquidistributed sequences (on a (0,1)^n hypercube, run through the inverse CDF). In a quantifiable sense, each additional point brings as much information as possible to the table.
