Brett Karlan

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Pittsburgh


I am a philosopher who works on normative philosophy and the philosophy of science. I focus on the ethical and epistemic foundations of contemporary cognitive science and artificial intelligence research. I am currently an Interdisciplinary Ethics Fellow at Stanford University, where I am affiliated with the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society and the Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence. I completed my PhD in philosophy at Princeton University under the sage guidance of Tom Kelly, and I previously worked with Colin Allen on The Machine Wisdom Project in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh.
