Dr. Hans Rosling’s “Let my dataset change your mindset”

For Friday, here’s some inspiration for great presentations of datasets. In his address to the U.S. Department of State, Dr. Hans Rosling of Sweden’s Karolinska Institute lets his dataset paint a picture, making a strong argument to dispel outdated notions about the Developing vs. Developed world. Years of data gathering, experiments, and statistical analysis are presented in a concise, compelling — and entertaining — manner. There’s something to be learned from him not only about public health, but also about effective presentations, which any of us could apply when making our case in the fields of risk analysis and decision making under uncertainty.

Enjoy!
