Fact-based data are powerful tools to combat fake news and misinformation. But how many of us really understand the significance of voter polls, probability or the COVID dashboard? David Spiegelhalter won the Royal Society’s Michael Faraday Prize for his work in making statistics and probability entertaining and accessible to key decision-makers and the public. Data artist Stefanie Posavec finds playful and friendly ways to communicate data visually. Together they will explain how an understanding of numbers can help us make informed decisions about our lives.
