Math deserves better

Though statistics can be used to make us smarter, they are often used to keep us dumb. Politicians, journalists and scientists misuse numbers to sell their message and thereby distort our world view. In her talk, Sanne Blauw, who writes for the Dutch blog ‘De Correspondent’ will give – sometimes funny, sometimes painful – examples of such misleading statistics and discuss how we can fight against such practices. After all, in the words of mathematician Cathy O’Neil: ‘Math deserves better.’
