I'm a UIUC CS undergraduate student... I have to take a probability theory course in order to graduate.. i was randomly googleing around and found this blog post.
Absolutely agree... we did a lot of probability stuff throughout the program.. we did (of course) discrete structures with probabilities as one of the key components of the course.. we did skip list when we were doing a data structure class.. .. and now I'm gonna take a formal Math course (really offered by Math Department) on probability theory.. hopefully in the Algorithm class that im gonna take a few semesters away would also mention probability~ (i'm guessing approximation algorithms)
So definitely probability has caught our attention :)

probability is really important for computer science

The average software engineer graduating Stanford University cannot solve a simple probability problem. That seems like there is an issue in education. Understanding probabilistic models is increasingly important. Algorithms for search results, matching, and more rely on probability. When we inte...
