From the media to medicine and from farming to finance – data answers questions faster, provides powerful insights and drives smarter critical decision‑making.
Spotting patterns is key to helping cure life‑threatening diseases.
Knowing your X from your Y-axis can predict who you might fall in love with.
And analyzing peaks and troughs can lead you to a game-changing opportunity for international business growth.
But most of the world can’t read, write or understand data – so it’s just gobbledygook. A scary alien language. And it can’t be used to unlock potential.
We believe everyone should be data literate.
Because with automation, robotics and artificial intelligence – a fourth industrial revolution is looming.
And data will be a universal language.
We are a global community dedicated to making the language of data understood and communicated effectively by all.
Together we can make these new skills a necessity in education.
Together we can future-proof our workforces. And together we will share the tools required to nurture lifelong data literacy and accelerate smarter use.
We can shape a successful data-literate, free-thinking and speaking culture for all.
We can all Be Data Brilliant.
Introducing Who we are
