Current research

Recent research concerns the epistemological structure of artificial perception systems - in particular deep neural networks. Will argues that these are importantly 'opaque' and that this relates to their manifesting epistemically non-inferential processes.

This work interacts with a collaborative project on the ethics of artificial intelligence with Prof. Fiona Woollard.
