Very effective demonstration of Bayes Theorem in action. Also, the bit about vaccination was pretty good.

I love that this is about maths. So many people don't get it.

Love the Christmas lectures. Also loved the demonstartion of herd immunity.
I have an infinite number of belief systems cos there are an infinite number of things I don't believe in.

I respect your right to believe whatever you want. I don't have to respect your beliefs.

It is interesting to note that Hannah Fry told her audience about AI being used as a diagnostic tool by clinicians - the example she talked about was the identification of macular degeneration in the eye. Today we have the revelation that AI is more effective method of identifying breast cancer than is a radiologist working alone.
