About Hans Rosling


How much do you understand about the would?

Today I'm going to talk about Hans Rosling.
I know, He is one of famous people in the group of statistics. Many of you guys will know him. For example, you've seen him in the TED. or you've read about his book FACTFULNESS. I urge you to read and confirm the contents of this book for yourself.

I met him almost two years ago (now May of 2021). I had just heard a rumor that a book called "FACTFULNESS" was apparently a good book. At the time, I was studying synthetic organic chemistry in graduate school, and I was interested in data analysis. In addition, at the time I was interested in world history and international issues such as poverty and economic disparity. With this background, it didn't take long for me to become interested in this book and its author.

**Now, let's get down to business.

Have you ever seen Hans Rosling's TED talk? I was as excited as a boxing match the first time I saw it, and since I wasn't a great listener at the time. I had to replay it over and over again to catch the arguments. His presentation skills are amazing, simple and easy to understand.

Now, let's talk about simple.

**Albert Einstein.

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
Intelligent fool, you tend to complicate things. In order to proceed in the opposite direction from that, it requires a lot of courage and a little bit of talent.

**Steve Jobs

Simple can be harder than complex. You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.


A wise man considers a complicated thing simply.

All three of them also talk about simplicity.
I can agree with them in many cases. What I mean is that the simpler the code in Python, the better (according to the Pythonic way of writing code, of course), and the simpler the diet for preventive medicine, the easier it will be to continue. I believe that the fashion of simplicity never goes out of style, and is always the best canvas to draw new dreams.

Now, back to the topic at hand.
