April 14th – Talk by Charles Rathkopf

Philosopher of Science Charles Rathkopf will join us on April 14th 11:00 for an in person talk and discussion. The topic is “Strange errors and the possibility of machine knowledge”. He will discuss how the phenomenon of strange error bears differently on two distinct but overlapping questions: (i) the possibility of using ML systems as sources of evidence for constructing human knowledge, and (ii) the possibility of ascribing knowledge to ML systems themselves.

It will be helpful if you acquaint yourself with:
