I will outline a research direction that is motivated by an intriguing confluence of ideas. On the one hand, there is a need for a theory of scoping of probabilistic information, which is required to model phenomena such as privacy and sharing of probabilistically generated data. On the other hand, there is a longstanding question of whether certain aspects of probability theory might benefit from a more abstract formulation. I will motivate the notion of probability sheaf as a potential tool for addressing both questions. No previous knowledge of sheaf theory will be assumed.
