Must-see video: The joy of stats

 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

Hans Rosling’s famous lectures combine enormous quantities of public data with a sports commentator’s style to reveal the story of the world’s past, present and future development. He explores stats in a way he has never done before, using augmented reality animation. I previously published a four-minute clip of his spectacular presentation entitled “The Joy of Stats”. A full-version documentary has now been produced, taking viewers on a rollercoaster ride through Rosling’s wonderful and funny world of statistics.
