The Future Of Death An Algorithm That Decides Who Deserves To Inherit All Your Stuff Co Design business design

This is the idea behind Beyond Blood, by artist-designer Sures Kumar. It’s an art project that imagines an algorithm from the not-so-distant future. Embedded in everything we own, the algorithm would see who enjoys our possessions with us--from the people who ride in our cars, to the people we gift jewelry. And by piecing together all of these moments from our lives, the algorithm would determine, in unrelenting math, who really deserves to inherit what. Does your estranged child really deserve your McMansion, or should your loyal housekeeper get it?

I can replace that algorithm with a simpler one: Give it all to charity.
