Calculating pi with Monte Carlo simulation

I came across Monte Carlo sampling in a class on Bayesian statistics, where a Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) sampler was used to approximate probability distributions that were otherwise hard to calculate due to nasty integrals. This posts illustrates the basic idea of Monte Carlo sampling, by using it to approximate the number $$\pi$$. The basic …

#### The Syllabus

↬ Awesome initiative from Evgeny Morozov: “An eclectic weekly selection of new academic articles, essays, talks, podcasts, and more.” You can compile your own weekly syllabus!

#### Is Google Making Us Stupid?

↬ That’s the essence of Kubrick’s dark prophecy: as we come to rely on computers to mediate our understanding of the world, it is our own intelligence that flattens into artificial intelligence.
