  • Coordinate with the author to develop and refine book chapters, sections, and overall narrative.
  • Maintain awareness of relevant scientific and philosophical literature and debates, as well as ongoing developments in emerging technologies.
  • If applicable, incorporate insights from anthropological research and scholarship to further enrich the book's exploration of technology and society.
