It is not just a matter of numbers

In my lectures I always mention at some point something that the great Hans Rosling has said or done.

We sadly lost him (by we, I mean humanity) in February of 2017. But his teaching and his thinking processes survive, and hopefully will do so for a long time.

For those of you who do not know of him, he was a Swedish physician, academic, statistician, and public speaker. He was the Professor of International Health at the Karolinska Institute and was also the co-founder and chairman of the Gapminder Foundation, which developed Trendalyzer software.

He has written wonderful books which have been read by, and which have inspired, millions.

To me at least, his most wonderful gift was as a statistician. And he always had something interesting to distill from information that both you and me would consider uninteresting.

As an example of his genius, here he is presenting his view that world population cannot possibly exceed 11 billion. It is a view that runs contrary to what has been generally accepted. You may agree with him or not, but it is a good exercise to let him takes us through his process.

I hope this tempts you to look for more about him.

 

Until next time

Ignacio
