Why everyone should be data literate | Jordan Morrow | TEDxBoise

How do we decipher between what is true and what is not without becoming data scientists? How can we use information to make better decisions? Data literacy opens our eyes and enables us to succeed in the digital revolution. Jordan is a fierce lover of the world of data and analytics, calling himself a “data nerd.” Besides his love of all things math- and data-related, Jordan is an avid trail runner and ultramarathoner, often exploring the mountain ranges of Utah. He is the proud father of five, married to his best friend from college, and even named his Golden Retriever, Wrigley, after the field where his beloved Chicago Cubs play. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
