About the speaker

Alistair Gentry is a writer and artist, currently research artist in residence at the ODI. Previous residencies include the ESRC Genomics Policy & Research Forum at the University of Edinburgh, and Cambridge University’s Centre for the Future of Intelligence. Many of his art projects are the result of extensive research in particular places, subjects and communities, sometimes over the course of many years. He also likes silly costumes, museums, absurdity, visiting the uncanny valley, and making machines do things their manufacturers wouldn’t approve of.
