Bayes Theorem in Visual Form

There is hardly a field in the modern world where Bayes Theorem is not used. It is used in chemistry, biology, medicine, physics, insurance industry, criminal profiling, in Google's self-driving cars and machine learning.

It is based on a branch of probability, known as the conditional probability. The animation shows how it is affected by the change in the probability of one or more events. 

In real life, as new factors are identified, the probability of an event in question changes and Bayes Theorem helps take them into account in mathematical way while paving the way for getting an intuitive grasp too.
