Speaker information

Dr Rob Levy, UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis

We are forever being told that we suffer from a deluge of data, a surfeit of stats. But we seem as ill-informed as ever about ourselves, our cities and our societies. Join Rob Levy as he explores the highs and lows of his relationship to data, and examines how data is delighting, misleading and downright duping us every day.

NB: This lecture replaces the talk originally advertised from Dr Hannah Fry
