Fokusgruppe Grundlagen der Digitalitätsphilosophie

Fokusgruppe Grundlagen der Digitalitätsphilosophie

Themen: Die Gruppe behandelt die philosophischen Grundlagen der Digitalisierung entlang ihrer Breite von Grundbegriffen bis hin zu komplexen Technologien wie Deep Learning der künstlichen Intelligenzforschung. Ziel ist die Darstellung und Analyse der Wechselwirkungen von (menschlichem) Denken, Erleben und Handeln mit digitalen Prozessen im weiten Sinne. Alle zwei Monate organisieren wir zudem für alle Interessierten offene Treffen (online), um grundlegende Schlüsseltexte zu diskutieren.

Leitung: Christoph Durt

 

Christoph Durt

Christoph Durt’s philosophical research comprises, on the one hand, the human mind, and, on the other, digital technology. Whereas both sides are often opposed, he studies their interplay and in particular how meaning and experience can be transformed by computational means. He has been Principal Investigator in several interdisciplinary projects on consciousness, self, and AI, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and the Volkswagen Foundation. Christoph has taught on a wide range of topics and authors from Ancient Philosophy to the present at Munich University, the University of California, Santa Cruz, the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Vienna. He has received several research and teaching awards, including one for the essay ‘The Computation of Bodily, Embodied, and Virtual Reality’ and another for the essay ‘How the Digitization of our World Changes Our Orientation’ (see www.durt.de).
