Jacy Anthis is a sociologist and statistician researching the technical and social dimensions of artificial intelligence.
He co-founded the Sentience Institute, a nonprofit, interdisciplinary research
organization studying long-term social and technological change.
In 2018, he published The End of Animal Farming, which 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' 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 lives in San Francisco with his wife Kelly Anthis and their adopted dogs Apollo and Dionysus. He is currently conducting research for a joint doctoral degree in sociology and statistics at the University of Chicago.
