TED Series: How Juries are Fooled by Statistics (Peter Donnelly)
TED is an acronym that stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design. Started in 1984, it is an annual conference to unite the opinion leaders of such fields. The lectures are always informative, thought-provoking, and graspable for the lay person. Dr. Peter Donnelly is a professor of mathematics and statistics at Oxford University and in his 21-minute lecture, he explains the fundamentals of statistics and the errors that most people - including other statisticians - make.
