Abstract

In this position paper, we discuss the potential for cross-fertilization between the disciplines of animal-computer interaction (ACI) and cultural anthropology. Through an analysis of the animal-technology-human triad in the Western familial and domestic context, we argue for a more systematic grounding of ACI in anthropology and in particular, inclusion of anthropological perspectives in ACI's multidisciplinary discourse. This can lead to new insights into how culture affects animal-human-technology interactions and relationships, as well as how it can be shaped by them.
