Introduction to Witnessed Presence

This special issue of AI and Society, Journal for Knowledge, Culture and Communication explores the notion of witnessing in the evolving technological culture. Whereas witnessing is a concept used mostly within the courtroom and has legal connotations for many, it originally refers to a process of being in the presence of each other. To be witness and to bear witness is distinct; through witnessing truth is assessed and trust established.
