On Thursday 9 February, the principal investigator of the project, Dr. Roger Canals, gave a talk entitled: Open debate on Visual Anthropology: experimentation, collaboration and artificial intelligence.

Dr. Canals defined what Visual Anthropology is and presented the debates and controversies that characterise it. He also reflected on how we relate to and through images. He also explained the Visual Trust research project, which aims to answer questions about trust in scientific, social and religious images.
