The Life Equation Virtual Screening (Love Data Week 2024)

Uptown Campus

Join the Tulane University Libraries for a virtual screening of The Life Equation (2016). All participants will be entered for a chance to win a copy of The Data Detective by Tim Harford. 

Film Description: 

What if there were an algorithm for saving the most lives?

Crecencia’s life depends on decisions made by doctors and donors, decisions increasingly driven by Big Data. It’s a scientific, evidence-based approach that cuts through the emotion and promises to transform the lives of hundreds of millions. But who, and what, gets lost in the number crunching?

The Life Equation is a powerful new documentary about global health in an era of Big Data.
