What will 2021 bring? Robotics expert predicts a social future.

Prospect magazine asks: what will Britain look like in ten year’s time? Dr Kathleen Richardson, tutor, UCL Department of Anthropology, also an expert in the anthropology of robotics, tells the magazine:

“Online social networks will become more important as they become legal proxies of individuals (like signatures).”

Dr Richardson advised me on my dissertation and on my current digital anthropology research on assisted living (which I cannot blog about just yet). You can follow her tweets at @robotanth, and you can read more on predictions made by other experts here.
