Day of Doubt

It was a very thought provoking and stimulating day at Imperial College, with some important critical discussions about the importance of doubt in science and society. I met some very interesting people from many different disciplines and organisations and audience numbers were big. It’s wonderful that Imperial is creating a space for this kind of discussion and exploration of ideas.

This is me introducing Sir Paul Nurse, chief executive of the Crick Institute and Prof Ian Walmsley, provost of Imperial College, and speaking about what doubt means in an arts practice. There were some interesting synergies and divergencies between artists and scientists thinking about doubt!
