 Introduction to Bayesian Filtering

Interesting article that digs into what Bayesian Filtering really does.

"So what does that formula do in simple terms? It lets us combine the probability of multiple independent events into one number. For example, suppose I know that when my car makes a loud clicking sound, there's a 75% chance it's going to break down. I also know that if it's more than 80 degrees Fahrenheit outside, my car only has a 15% chance of breaking down. If it's more than 80 degrees outside and my car is making a loud clicking sound, I can use Bayes Formula to figure out how likely it is that I'm going to be walking to work that morning (34.6%, if you're curious).
