Bayes, Thomas


Mathematician, born in London, England, UK. He was one of the first six Nonconformist ministers to be publicly ordained in England. He is principally remembered for his posthumously published Essay Towards Solving a Problem in the Doctrine of Chances (1763), in which he was the first to study the idea of statistical inference, and to estimate the probability of an event from the frequency of its previous occurrences.
