Chaos. Randomness. Utter unpredictability.


These sound like trouble, but they are actually tools that you can use to make software more reliable, solve paradoxes, test theorems and much, much more.


With a few slides, a bit of live coding and a lot of fun I will show how you can become a Lord of Chaos. Specifically, I will show how you can use randomness to:


- Solve the Monte Hall problem and explain your answer

- Do precise proximity searches on geo-hashed databases

- Safely build machine learning models in the open to solve problems on secure data

- Design software that behaves predictably without corner cases

- Test statistical hypotheses without remembering formulas
