CAPABLE is a Horizon 2020 funded EU project that is developing a virtual cancer coaching system to support the emotional, educational and social needs of patients and their home carers as well as decision support needs of treating physicians, using cutting edge technologies for personalised medicine such as artificial intelligence, big data analysis and wearable technologies.
The artists will deeply engage with CAPABLE project research to create a new body of artworks. They have extensive experience in working with artificial intelligence, wearable technologies, and exploring the implications of emerging digital technologies in societal and cultural contexts. Together they will help CAPABLE reach out to diverse audiences across a range of contexts including art galleries, festivals and patient waiting areas, and enable the telling of complex stories in multi-layered, accessible ways through art objects, workshops, and discussion events.
“We are honoured to receive this fantastic opportunity to work with CAPABLE and explore this important project to benefit cancer patients and carers” says Anna Dumitriu. “As artists, we will explore how CAPABLE are using artificial intelligence and wearable technologies to create personalised medicine solutions and consider the personal, ethical, cultural and societal implications of this research”.
