Beyond Blood – Emotional attachment and inheritance by algorithm

Created by Sures Kumar at the RCA Design Interactions, ‘Beyond Blood’ is a project that imagines a legal system where algorithms take over the inheritance process where the deceased has not left a will and the state has to distribute the estates. Inspired by the near-future scenario of "internet of things" (as described in Shaping Things by Bruce Sterling) where every object is trackable and logged by a computer system, the project suggests that by tracking people and objects over a number of years, computers will be able to infer the significance of an object to a particular individual.
