Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence (9-12)
Luke SawczakRoom A - K3015
The rapidly growing number of things one can do with machine learning and data has been discussed both as a brave new frontier and an existential threat. A less frequently explored approach is that of a philosophy of science. In this presentation I explore whether progress made through AI can be meaningful progress, applying the concepts of Plato's distinction of art vs. habit, Popper's falsifiable predictions, Lanier's technological humanism, and more.
