Ethics and Philosophy of Information
Information is the fundamental component of the technological advances that characterise our time. Increasing technological interactions between people, organisations, and artefacts generate, transmit, and process immense quantities of data about the social and physical world at an unprecedented rate and scale. We are investigating the conceptual aspects of such radical transformations of reality brought about by this information revolution.
We aim to understand the power of information and the influence of information technologies, which have come to mediate human experience in the modern world. Our ultimate goal is to advance philosophically robust assessment and design of emerging technologically-mediated realities.
