bayes filter

A bayes filter is a way to find the probability (or chance) of something happening. It uses a type of math called "Bayes Theorem" to look at different kinds of evidence and figure out what the most likely outcome it. For example, if you wanted to know if it would rain tomorrow, you could look at the amount of clouds in the sky, the temperature, and the forecast and use a bayes filter to figure out the chance that it will rain.
