Eamon Duede | University of Chicago
I am an epistemologist of science focusing on two streams of research.
My theoretical work in the philosophy of science focuses on the epistemology of emerging technologies, principally artificial intelligence (AI).
My empirical work uses computational approaches falling under the broad heading of "Data Science" to investigate the roles that methods and institutions play in scientific discovery.
I am also interested in the ethics of AI and other emerging technologies such as quantum computing in science, business, and society.
I am currently a joint PhD Candidate in the departments of Philosophy and the Committee on the Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science at the University of Chicago. I am a Fellow in the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering AI-Enabled Molecular Engineering of Materials and Systems for Sustainability (AIMEMS) program, and have research affiliations with Globus Labs, KnowledgeLab, and the Digital, Data, and Design Institute at Harvard University.
◈ I was named a "Rising Star in Data Science" by the University of Chicago Data Science Institute in the Autumn of 2022
