KEYNOTE:: Screens may be the focus of an activity but often they simply function as a resource for accomplishing other situated activities. In this talk I focus on screens as situated resources for action. I call these types of sequences for screen-implicating interactions (cf. Weilenmann & Lymer, 2014; Nevile et al., 2014; Tuncer et al., 2019), i.e. when participants interact with and through the screens, and the screens become means for interaction and the accomplishment of activities. I will in this talk focus on new types of AI technologies that contains screens, and which also afford mobility. I will suggest three different types of screen-implicating interactions with and through AI agents: a) remotely controlling through a screen, b) being present through a screen, c) receiving information through a screen. Across these different types of mobile AI technologies that are embedded in screen-implicating interactions, I will try to show how people and technologies merge into new temporary assemblages that enable distributed perception (Due, 2021, 2022).
