Professor Sir David Spiegelhalter is a best-selling author and Chair of the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication hosted within the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at the University of Cambridge. The Centre aims to ensure that quantitative evidence and risk is presented to people in a fair and balanced way.
David will address the proposition that data does not speak for itself – it needs people to speak honestly and carefully on its behalf. A misunderstood statistic could have terrible consequences in health, wealth, and justice. By contrast better statistics should lead to better debate and hopefully, better decisions.
