The Webinar on Probability and Games of Chance took place on Thursday, October 29th, 2020 from 2 pm until 3 pm, with Dr. Gregorio Moreno, Professor of Mathematics at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.
The invited speaker explained that chance can be found in dice, the wheel of fortune, the lottery, casino games, financial markets, DNA and many more examples. Dr. Gregorio Moreno emphasized that even though understanding the theory of probability does not eliminate the uncertainty, the probability is a type of information. The speaker also described a losing strategy and a winning strategy for games of chance.
