Hans Rosling og forstærket virkelighed

“I kid you not, statistics is now the sexiest subject on the planet” – Hans Rosling.

Hans Rosling, som mange kender fra TED Talks, forsøger sammen med BBC at præsentere verdens udvikling via forstærket virkelighed (eller hvad vi så end har valgt at kalde augmented reality på dansk). Han kigger på forventet gennemsnitlig levealder og gennemsnitlig personlig inkomst i løbet af de seneste 200 år. Det vil sige 120.000 stykker data. Klippet er fra BBC’s dokumentar “The Joy of Stats“, som netop har Rosling som vært.

I'm pretty much in love with a data. Or, the knowledge we can extract from it. Or, rather, the better decisions that can be made based on said knowledge.I hold a M.Sc in Sociology a MA in Historical Social Enquiry (Social History + Historical Sociology + Global Development), and work as Information Management Lead at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. I guess you can call me a Computational Sociologist of Global Development and Humanitarian Action. No less.That's pretty much it, really.

  1. Pretty neat, indeed….
