Winelands: Virtual speaker evening - Dr Tanya de Villiers-Botha

Whose responsibility is it anyway?  Truth and social media

Dr Tanya de Villiers-Botha is a lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at Stellenbosch University, where she obtained her DPhil in 2006.  She is currently the coordinator of the Data and Computational Ethics Research Group of the Stellenbosch University Philosophy Department, and a member of the Global AI Ethics Consortium of the Institute for the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, Technical University of Munich.  Her research interests include: philosophy of mind and cognitive science; philosophy of evolutionary biology; and the ethics of AI.

In her presentation, Dr de Villiers-Botha will assess the degree to which both the users and the providers of online information can be held epistemically (and perhaps morally) responsible for the epistemic beliefs that such users come to hold.

Mensa Winelands’ monthly speaker evening.
