Anthropology, AI and the Future of Human Society Virtual Conference
6-10 June 2022


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.

The conference is co-organised by the British Science Fiction Association and the EASA Future Anthropologies Network (FAN). Fellows and members of co-organising institutions are eligible to register at the RAI Fellows rate.
