Denisa Kera is a professor, philosopher and designer interested in DNA and food data. She asks, what happens when people share data in social situations? She organizes DNA Dinners at a local hackerspace to experiment with this question. In the video below, Denisa talks about how she turned her genetic data into a bruschetta dish, what other kinds of data she wants to include in future dinners, and why she’s questioning whether or not to publicly share her data. (Filmed by the Singapore QS Show&Tell meetup group.)
