TED talks @ RC | Theme: Let My Dataset Change Your Mindset

Event Description: “LET MY DATASET CHANGE YOUR MINDSET” Would you like to update your world mindset in 20 minutes? Do you want to understand why “developing world” and “third world” are outdated terms? Hans Rosling, a professor of Global Health in Sweden, developed visualization software to make data sing! He uses moving bubbles and flowing curves to track global health and poverty trends that should be boring, but in his presentation are like watching a fast-paced video game.
