On the 4th of September, I gave a presentation on Kant and AI as part of a panel on “Recent Kant Scholarship” organised for the 2017 UK Kant Society Annual Conference at the University of St Andrews (organiser of the conference, Michael Walschots). For the presentation, I referred mainly to the general problem of the possibility of constructing artificial intelligence starting from Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason, and I drew mainly on texts 2 and 3 below.

In case you are aware of other relevant literature, could you let me know? Many thanks in anticipation!
