I heard Amber Case case speak at a 5D (Future of Immersive Design) Conference at the Hammer Museum in LA. Apart from the fascinating discussion that she had with other panelists (from Allosphere and Hanson Robotics), she introduced to me the new field of Cyborg Anthropology. Its a funky name for something that lot of other people do but still it caught attention and stuck on to my memory. In short it is the study of the evolution of the fusion of the human and the machine. Another related field is the field of Cyber (not cyborg) Anthropology.
Here is Amber herself explaining Cyborg Anthropology in a short presentation for Ignite.
PS: Cyborg is short for “cybernetic organism,” a being that is part cybernetic machine and part organism.
