morning...

I watched an episode of "Connected" on Netflix - Episode 4, Digits - It spoke about Benfords Law, which predicts the frequency distribution of leading digits in any set of numerical data -

I believe its used (apart from other fields) in fraud detection by the tax authorities.

there are several videos on YT on this... pretty fascinating stuff... i wonder if it's used in aviation in any way....

It's also used in my previous area of work / research - discrete maths and AI...

Big Data is one of the "practical" areas of use.

Thx for the links!
