From:
A. N. Kolmogorov, Logical basis for information theory and probability theory, *IEEE
***IT-14*** *(1968) (one of the founders of modern probability theory):

The proceeding rather superficial
discourse should prove two general theses:

(1) Basic information theory concepts must and can be founded without

recourse to the probability theory . . . .

(2) Introduced in this manner, information theory concepts can form the
basis

of the concept *random*, which [would then] naturally suggest that
the

random is the absence of periodicity.
