Partner Event - How to speak whale

About this event 

In the first Turing Lecture for everyone aged 11+, wildlife filmmaker Tom Mustill reveals how a close encounter with a humpback whale inspired him to find out whether we could ever talk to these ocean giants.

The Alan Turing Institute invites you to submerge yourself in Tom’s underwater world, hear about the amazing advances scientists are making in decoding animal communication, and be rumbled by the voices of our deep-sea orca-stra!

This event is organised in collaboration with the Royal Institution of Great Britain.
