Living Philosophy - Philosophy of Technology Podcast

Press/Media: Research

Description

A focused public-facing interview on key topics in philosophy of technology, with Prof Mark Coeckelbergh (University of Vienna, European Commission High Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence), and Dr Todd Mei (Philosophy2U). 

One of the great insights from the philosophy of technology is that the more our devices become integrated with our lives, the more they reframe our relationships to others, the world, and even our purposes. In other words, technological devices tend to carry us away, for better or for worse. Dominic Smith (Associate Professor, University of Dundee) and Mark Coeckelbergh (Professor, University of Austria) discuss the paradoxical, political, and historical dimensions of our relations to technology.
