Hans Rosling's talk at the 2007 it@cork conference

Hans Rosling gave the opening address at the 2007 it@cork Technology in Business Conference.

His talk was incredibly eye opening as the Trendalyzer software he developed shows how the world is “double inversely logarithmically unjust”.

Watch and enjoy!

    Great presentation. This reminds me of the video made from the US air traffic control data – the patterns that emerge are astonishing.

    Data visualisation is a very powerful tool to begin with but when it’s made interactive like this, it becomes totally compelling.

    I do wonder how many people in the world would see free access to information in this way as a threat to their power base.

    I was at the IT@Cork conference, and Hans Rosling’s presentation was probably the highlight in what was an impressive array of speakers. He’s a natural (either that or he’s worked hard to perfect the art), and the Trendalyzer software is amazing.

    You can even play around with it yourself — just go to http://www.gapminder.org and click on the “go to graph” link under Gapminder World 2006. Have fun… I did!
