Who are IT people here, may I ask you?
What kind of question is that, want to do blah-blah? Or at your school they want to "answer" pointless questions?

More generally this is often the other way round.

Probability and statistics laws have generally been found on paper.
In practice though, the calculation and use of stats will more often than not require computers.

"The advent of the computer has certainly revolutionised the practice of
statistics." (Speed, 1985).

Statistics and the Computer

In any case probability and statistics are used all over the place in software and sometime in places you would not expect.
One of them would be the SQL query optimizer.

Pretty good point. (Well, the question was quite pointless.) The only problem: I found the article you reference quite empty and pointless. During my work in the Academy, I noticed that some part of printed works written by official "scientists" just pretend to be scientific. This one looks like one of those to me. (I voted 4 for the answer).
