A standard (and usually implicit) assumption in physics is that experimental parameters can be chosen “freely”. For example, the conclusions we draw from Bell-type experiments are generally only valid if the measurements are selected at random. In this talk, I consider a situation where this assumption is weakened and ask whether the standard conclusions we draw in physics are still valid. As a possible path towards an answer, I will show that it is possible to turn “partially free randomness” into “fully free randomness”—- a task that is provably impossible in a purely classical world.
