Reading Group sobre Filosofia da Inteligência Artificial e da Computação

O Reading Group sobre Filosofia da Inteligência Artificial tem como objetivo a discussão e análise de textos em tópicos que vão da relação entre a mente e a implementação de procedimentos cognitivos em sistemas de deep learning, às implicações epistémicas, metodológicas e éticas da IA na sua relação com a Ciência. O Reading Group reúne habitualmente às sextas, entre as 11:00h e as 13:00h.

As sessões decorrem na plataforma Zoom, sendo os intervenientes avisados por email, uma semana antes, assim como no dia anterior.

Se desejar participar, por favor envie um email para (Paulo Castro).
