Factfulness – The importance of facts and science

Ola Rosling is CEO and founder of the Gapminder Foundation, which he founded together with his wife Anna Rosling Rönnlund and father Hans Rosling.

Since 1999, Ola has been leading the development of the Trendalyzer software, which was acquired by Google in 2007. Among other things, Ola and his team delivered Motion Chart, which is now part of Google Spreadsheets. As Product Manager for Google Public Data, Ola helped build the infrastructure required to make official statistics part of Google’s search results. Ola and Anna returned to Gapminder in 2011 to develop free learning materials for a fact-based worldview.

In 2014, Ola coined the concept of Factfulness, which Gapminder now markets to make education about sustainable development less ideological and more fact-based. Together with Anna and Hans, he also wrote Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About the World – and Why Things Are Better Than You Think.

Only by having a worldview based on facts can we make the right decisions. With his experience and his tools, Ola shows how facts and science can be interpreted in a simpler way so that you are not deceived by false information.
