Sasha Stiles

Sasha Stiles is a first-generation Kalmyk American poet, artist, and AI researcher who often works in collaboration with her cybernetic alter ego, Technelegy. Stiles’s hybrid poems have been honored in the Future Art Awards, nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net, exhibited in analog and virtual realms around the world, and published as NFTs. Stiles is poetry mentor to the humanoid android BINA48, as well as a co-founder of crypto literary collective, and has spoken at events including SXSW, Miami Art Week & Art Basel, NFT.NYC, the Contemporary and Digital Art Fair, and the Ai4 Tech Summit. Her first book, Technelegy—a cross-media poetry collection that probes what it means to be human in a nearly post-human era—has been hailed as “an instant techno-classic.”
