About the Conference
Anthropology, AI and the Future of Human Society Conference.
AI has come to represent multiple causal drivers of change: amongst them artificial intelligence itself, space exploration, biotech, 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.
