The Monty Hall Problem

PRESENTED ON SEP 14, 2018
IN ASHEVILLE @ VOL 20

The so-called "Monty Hall problem" is a probability puzzle that captured the public imagination when it was widely publicized in the early 1990s. This popularization and a backlash from flummoxed mathematics PhDs raised some interesting issues around gender. In his PechaKucha talk, Jay Hill explores a bit of this history and tries to give an explanation of the problem.
