Significance magazine - In our June issue: lessons from history, and bursting the big data bubble

Significance magazine:
The June 2017 issue of Significance is out now in digital formats. In this issue, historians use a naval battle of the First World War to explain how Bayesian thinking helps them reason with the uncertainties of the past. We profile Lord Woolton, Britain’s Minister of Food during the Second World War, who used statistics (and more) to prevent the nation from starving. And we have an exclusive excerpt from the new book by David S. Salsburg, author of The Lady Tasting Tea.
