I am an avid student of philosophy and computer science. My specific interests lie in the intersection of the two: the philosophy of computing and what computing says about philosophy. I am interested in the ethical implications of computer science innovations, specifically artificial intelligence and I ask questions like these:
Ethical issues of A.I
- How intelligent does A.I need to be before we give it ethical consideration?
- What ethical considerations would we owe it?
- What does this say about humans overall?
- Can/should we attempt to create human-level A.I?
- How about A.I. wihth superior intelligence?
- What other innovations pose ethical issues and what are their limitations?
Epistemological and Cognitive implications of A.I.
- Do we live in a simulation?
- Is our world governed like a program? If so, are the laws of math and physics the language?
- If the world is governed like a program, what is the purpose of philosophy itself (meta-philosophy)?
- What do machine-learning, deep learning, and other A.I. learning methods say about our own forms of cognition?
- Favorite Foods: 1) Pizza, 2) Ice Cream/Ices, 3) Bacon Burger, 4) Sushi. Not all at the same time.
- Movie: The Shawshank Redemption comes to mind. And all the Star Wars movies.
- Current Books: The Cosmic Computer and The Simpsons and Philosophy
- Current Philosophy Works: Kant's CPR, Mind Design II, and Rethinking Machines: Artificial Intelligence Beyond The Philosophy of Mind
- Programming Language: Java (Processing Library) for visual stuff. Otherwise Python.
- Composer: Bach. Baroque represent. I like the Wedge Prelude and Fugue and the Trio Sonatas especially.
Basically I build websites. I've been building them since I was 11 (they sucked, but I got better. It's all part of the learning curve. ). I enjoy build engaging and aesthetically pleasing digital experiences to help grow your business. I work with a web design agency called Captivect Design Co (which I started), but I don't mind working freelance. Contact me for more information, or go to Captivect Design.
I have studied classical organ for about 5 years. In addition to studying classical organ, I work as a substitute church musician for extended or one-time jobs. Contact me for more information.
