# Prior Probability

## What Is Prior Likelihood?

Prior chance, in Bayesian statistical inference, is the chance of an occasion earlier than new knowledge is collected. That is the perfect rational evaluation of the chance of an consequence primarily based on the present data earlier than an experiment is carried out.

## Prior Likelihood Defined

The prior chance of an occasion can be revised as new knowledge or info turns into out there, to supply a extra correct measure of a possible consequence. That revised chance turns into the posterior probability and is calculated utilizing Bayes’ theorem. In statistical phrases, the posterior chance is the chance of occasion A occurring on condition that occasion B has occurred.

For instance, three acres of land have the labels A, B, and C. One acre has reserves of oil under its floor, whereas the opposite two don’t. The prior chance of oil being discovered on acre C is one third, or 0.333. But when a drilling take a look at is performed on acre B, and the outcomes point out that no oil is current on the location, then the posterior chance of oil being discovered on acres A and C turn out to be 0.5, as every acre has one out of two probabilities.

Baye’s theorem is a quite common and basic theorem utilized in data mining and machine learning.

If we have an interest within the chance of an occasion of which we’ve got prior observations; we name this the prior chance. We’ll deem this occasion A, and its chance P(A). If there’s a second occasion that impacts P(A), which we’ll name occasion B, then we wish to know what the chance of A is given B has occurred. In probabilistic notation, that is P(A|B), and is called posterior chance or revised chance. It is because it has occurred after the unique occasion, therefore the put up in posterior. That is how Baye’s theorem uniquely allows us to replace our earlier beliefs with new info.
