On today’s episode of Strongly Connected Components Samuel Hansen called up the Winton Professor for the Public Understanding of Risk, as well as Senior Scientist in the MRC Biostatistics Unit, David Spiegelhalter. They discussed the true meaning of risk, the importance of the Bayesian Method, how to get a lot of citations, and even a bit about the bookies. To find out more about Professor Spiegelhalter check out his website, look at his stained glass work, or watch him in the below video as Professor Risk.
Brilliant video. Well shot and directed, and well acted by Prof. Spiegelhalter.
It is a good video and a great example of the work that they do over at Cambridge, wish I could take credit for it myself but I had nothing to do with it.
