The systematic application of probabilistic methods in 200 years since the groundbreaking work of Laplace expanded into an entire branch of science: statistics. The aim of statistics is to make sound predictions when the available information has a probabilistic character. Statistics finds and explains many features of systems governed by the rules of probability.
