Who said statistics were boring?! You will never think so again after Tuesday’s talk from Sir David Spiegelhalter. .

Sir David is the Winton Professor of the Public Understanding of Risk here in the Cambridge Statistical Lab. His work focuses on using quantitative methods to deal with risk and uncertainity in the lives of the individual and society. Sir David has also worked in medical statistics with an emphasis on Bayesian methods; he has worked on clinical trials and consulted for pharmacological companies. Sir David is working on an Understanding Uncertainity project, for which he runs the Cambridge Coincidences Collection: he is collecting coinicdences and analysing them for how surprising they are, to discover more about the chances of coincidence.

Sir David really makes statistics exciting, so this talk is a must for everyone!

As usual it will be £2, or lifetime membership for the great value of £15. There will be a chance to quiz Sir David further after the talk over plenty of wine and cheese

See you all on Tuesday!
