Together with Jakub Mlynář and Saul Albert, we compile an anthology of existing literature in the tradition of Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis (EMCA) on the topic of Artifical Intelligence. We explore how EMCA interacts with various strands of Artifical Intelligence, describe meeting points between the two fields, analyse citation networks, and revisit the impact of EMCA on human-centered work in Artifical Intelligence.

Stay tuned for more updates on this!

I aspire to produce useful insights for anyone who designs, builds, uses or regulates talking machines.
