The Human Mind Project runs an annual festival called Being Human. This year at Senate House I worked with Guerilla Science and The People Speak to open up discussion about artificial intelligence and creativity.
Talkaoke was in the EU Corner at The Natural History Museum for Science Uncovered 2016.
We talked about things like driverless cars, economics, dinosaurs, politics and Star Trek.
Talkaoke, in conjunction with Chat Lab from Queen Mary, was at ExCel Centre in London for 4 days of New Scientist Live, a festival of ideas and discovery.

You Have Been Upgraded was a festival of human enhancement held at the Science Museum in March 2015. The festival transformed part of the Museum into a futuristic expo of biotechnology, featuring a mix of scientists, experts, artists and a bold theatrical performance.
Created by the Science Museum in collaboration with Unlimited Theatre, You Have Been Upgraded imagined a world where biotechnologists were elevated to rock star status by a new mega-company. Festival visitors entered a world where the boundaries of what it means to ‘be a normal human’ are broad, flexible and highly personal.
I commissioned and oversaw production of this short film made by Chocolate Films.
