AI as Infrastructure, Automation as Care

How is advanced automation implemented in two seemingly disparate domains – agriculture and healthcare – that nevertheless share a common impetus, to care for bodies ?

Špela shares strategies of gaining access and communal knowledge production to better understand the hidden underbelly of our societies, no less political than what screams from our screens.
