Andrei Kolmogorov The theory of probability ... can and should be developed from axioms ...
Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily William of Occam
It seems to me that the most important discovery since Gödel was the discovery by Chaitin, Solomonoff, and Kolmogorov of a concept called Algorithmic Probability. ... This is a beautiful theory ... Everybody should learn all about that and spend the rest of their lives working on it. Marvin Minsky, 2010
