      Nate Silver has been called a "spreadsheet psychic" and a "number-crunching prodigy" by New York Magazine. Nate comes out of the world of baseball statistics, but during the 2009 presidential election primaries, he turned his sights and his amazing predictive abilities and forecasting models to the game of politics and current events – with incredible results that were replicated in the 2012 elections. TIME has named him one of the world's 100 Most Influential People in 2009. His new book, The Signal and the Noise: Why Most Predications Fail – But Some Don't, is a tour of modern prediction science, uncovering a surprising connection among humility, uncertainty and good results.
