Stats guru and political forecaster Nate Silver reveals why most predictions fail, and shows how we can isolate a true "signal" from a universe of increasingly big and noisy data.

Speaker: Nate Silver, statistician and political forecaster at The New York Times.

Chair: Dara O Briain, award-winning comedian, writer and broadcaster.
