Chris Lintott

The Kent College Lecture

Best-known as co-presenter of BBC’s Sky at Night, Chris Lintott is Professor of Astrophysics at Oxford University and Principal Investigator for Zooniverse – a web-based project that allows hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic volunteers to contribute to science.

Chris argues that humans still have unique capabilities to bring to bear even in the era of technological advance and artificial intelligence delivering data in a constant deluge. Chris describes the exciting revelations that citizens all over the world have made – from galaxies to pulsars, exoplanets to moons and penguin behaviour to old ships’ logs – through their involvement in Zooniverse.
