Jacy Anthis is a sociologist, statistician, and co-founder of the Sentience Institute.
His 2018 book, The End of Animal Farming, analyzes the emergence of food technologies
such as cell-cultured meat. Psychologist Steven Pinker said the book "places the issue of factory farming in the context
of human progress and presents compelling arguments on how we should deal with it today.”
Anthis' current projects focus on the technical and social dimensions of artificial intelligence. He is currently a
PhD Fellow at The University of Chicago.
His research has been featured in The Guardian, Vox, Forbes, and other global media outlets, and he has presented at conferences and seminars in over 20 countries. He is from Huntsville, Texas and lives in San Francisco with his wife Kelly Anthis and their adopted dogs Apollo and Dionysus.
