What can you expect from a conference with Ola Rosling?

His TED Talk “How Not to Ignore the World” is one of the most popular TED Talks of all time. Rosling demonstrates that what people think they know about the world is statistically unlikely to be correct and provides a solution to be less ignorant through four ways.
As a speaker, Ola's fascinating knowledge of statistics and data, combined with his insightful delivery, make him an ideal choice for a diverse range of topics and events.

What has been his professional career? How has he contributed to society?

In 2013, Ola Rosling developed The Ignorance Project, with the goal of researching what the public knows and doesn't know about basic global patterns and macro trends, in order to develop appropriate teaching materials.

As product manager for Google's public data, Rosling democratized access to public statistics by integrating official statistical sources into Google search results through the introduction of DSPL (Data Set Publishing Language).
