I recently had a chance to speak to Tobias Rees, of the Berggruen Insitute where I am currently an inaugural fellow. Our conversation included some thoughts on Stephen Hawking, the idea of a distributed subject which arose from my ethnographic work with Professor Hawking, and how it relates to my current research on type 1 diabetes.
I recently had an opportunity to speak with Aybike Alkan of the Istanbul Science Technology Society about my book, Hawking Incorporated. The interview, part of their Feminist Technoscience Interview Series, can be found on the ISTS website.
Through fieldwork with Professor Hawking and his staff, Hélène developed the insights that led to her book Hawking, Incorporated. Now, reflecting on the death of a titan in the worlds of science and science popularization, she offers her thoughts in The Atlantic.
Recent talks and events that Hélène has participated in include:
On the occasion of Stephen Hawking's 75th birthday, January 8, Helene has published an op-ed exploring how society might evolve in response to Hawking's predictions for AI. The article is hosted by CASTAC (Committee for the Anthropology of Science, Technology & Computing), a part of the American Anthropological Association.
Hélène will be among the international roster of speakers discussing the philosophical and anthropological impacts and implications of the shifting frontiers of biomedicine, artificial intelligence, the data economy, and transhumanism.
Speaking at Les entretiens du nouveau monde industriel 2016, hosted at the Pompideau Centre, Hélène's panel begins at 10:00 am, December 14, 2016. and will address questions arising from augmented bodies, artificial intelligence, and society.
The talk is free to attend, but registration is requested.
Hélène will be joining the faculty of the Department of Science and Technology Studies at York University.
