Mark Bedau presents 'Decision Making in Complex and Emerging Systems'

2013-07-08 by News, Sports, and Art

Mark Bedau has worked extensively on philosophical and scientific issues concerning emergence, evolution, life, mind and the social and ethical implications of creating life from scratch.

Because he combines training in analytical philosophy with more than a decade of experience in artificial life, he is internationally recognized as a leader in the development of socially and ethically responsible practices for creating life-like systems.

Bedau has been professor of philosophy and humanities at Reed College since 1991 and editor-in-chief of the Artificial Life journal since 2000. He holds a doctorate in philosophy from the University of California at Berkeley.
