Philosophy and Computation – Online Workshop

Sunday, May 13, University of Lund, Sweden


Details

The workshop “Philosophy and Computation” aims to be a platform for various discussions concerning the use of computability in philosophy (for example, how computational complexity constraints can contribute to explain human understanding) and also questions concerning the philosophical investigation of computation (like questions related to Church-Turing thesis). 
The workshop is inspired by the celebration of Turing’s Centenary. More information about the celebrations can be found at the following website: http://www.turingcentenary.eu/

The main objective of the workshop is to gather international specialists, philosophers, cognitive scientists and computer scientists, who will be given an opportunity to present their research and time to discuss important topics related to philosophy and computation.
