  • Adrian Mackenzie : "Learning by association: biomedical platforms, knowledge infrastructures and the growth of predictive power"

The changes  described in this paper concerns how biological processes associated with genomes figure in predictive medicine. As predictive models based on machine learning techniques are brought to bear on genomic data, they target those aspects of genomes — their variation, their manifold spatial and temporal relationality in biological processes and functions — that seem most distant from and difficult to discern in DNA or other sequence data.  This paper discusses the growing importance of predictive models for  genomes as touchstones for wider transformations in many sectors of science, industry, commerce, media and government.

  • Anna Harris "Making clinical sense: A comparative study of how doctors learn in digital times"

Digital technologies are reconfiguring medical practices in ways we still don’t understand. In this presentation I will discuss a new research project which seeks to examine the impact of the digital in medicine by studying the role of pedagogical technologies in how doctors learn the skills of their profession. The study focuses on the centuries-old skill of physical examination; a sensing of the body, through the body. Increasingly medical students are learning these skills away from the bedside, through videos, simulated models and in laboratories. Along with two other anthropologists and a historian I interrogate how learning with these technologies impacts on how doctors learn to sense bodies. Through the rich case of doctors-in-training the study addresses a key challenge in social scientific scholarship regarding how technologies, particularly those digital, are implicated in bodily, sensory knowing of the world.
