Persi Diaconis on NPR

Postby Richard Hatch » February 25th, 2004, 8:07 pm

Persi Diaconis of Stanford University was interviewed on NPR's "All things considered" program yesterday (Tuesday, February 24). His research has shown that flipping coins by humans is NOT random, there is a slight bias favoring the original "up" side to land "up". The interview and a photo of a coin flipping machine (which always flips the coin the same way, with the same result) may be accessed at
