Committee: Philosophy and Computers

This committee will cease operations as of June 30, 2020.

Committee Charge

The committee works to provide forums for discourse devoted to the critical and creative examination of the role of information, computation, computers, and other computationally enabled technologies (such as robots). The committee endeavors to use that discourse not only to enrich philosophical research and pedagogy, but to reach beyond philosophy to enrich other discourses, both academic and non-academic.
 
The committee also publishes the Newsletter on Philosophy and Computers, the editor of which serves in an ex officio capacity on this committee.
 
In addition, this committee awards the Barwise Prize, which is given on a yearly basis for significant and sustained contributions to areas relevant to philosophy and computing.
