Quantum 101 Episode 6: Quantum Probability Explained

Posted by in categories: cosmology, quantum physics

When Albert Einstein famously said “God does not play dice with the universe” he wasn’t objecting to the idea that randomness exists in our everyday lives.

What he didn’t like was the idea that randomness is so essential to the laws of physics, that even with the most precise measurements and carefully controlled experiments there would always be some level at which the outcome is effectively an educated guess. He believed there was another option.

This video discusses how probability is determined in quantum mechanics. Let’s play some dice with the universe and talk about it.
