Tracking the trackers: enacting health and illness through the digital detection of early Alzheimer’s disease
10th June 2022
Richard and Alessia presented on a paper concerned with ontology, multiplicity and bioinformation journeys. Specifically, they explored how alternative enactments of illness and health emerge, are stabilised and co-ordinated through bioinformation journeys across multiple domains of knowledge and practice.
Virtual Conference: 6 -10 June 2022
Anthropology, AI and the Future of Human Society. AI has come to represent multiple causal drivers of change: amongst them artificial intelligence itself, space exploration, bio-tech and other emerging technologies. The implications for human society could hardly be more significant, and feed into a host of already contemporary concerns, such as sovereignty, economics, politics, reproduction and kinships, ethics and law, conflict and many more.
We wish to explore these issues from the broadest range of perspectives. From its foundation, anthropology has studied the complexity and variety of human society, and now we may turn to developing a sustained body of disciplinary understanding envisaging what may come in near, and more distant eras.
