Tom Kane

Senior Lecturer in Business Analytics, University of Stirling
I am a research-active lecturer in Artificial Intelligence, Data-Science and Business Information Systems. My primary research area is in the artificial intelligence of artificial persons and interactions between artificial persons and natural persons. The oncoming fourth industrial revolution which will blur the distinction between human and machine interactions is inevitable, and will bring disruptive business opportunities for organisations who manage to harness the new business potential of social bots, communicative medical devices, deep data-mining, cognitive and near-cognitive systems and robotic, autonomous systems. Alongside the challenge of innovating hardware and software systems that can mimic or impersonate human capabilities come fascinating and complex ethical questions of their place in the Information Society. Clear, logical AI models that maintain contractual obligations and ethical responsibilities; and that are comprehensible and testable by technologists and civic society alike are my major interest. My background is both academic and business focused. The rollout of implementations of AI systems while addressing the ethical questions these systems raise are of interest both to my Artificial Intelligence training and my business background.

Tom McClelland

Lecturer in History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge
I recently joined HPS after three years at the Faculty of Philosophy. Before that I held posts at the universities of Warwick, Manchester and Glasgow and studied at the universities of Sussex, York and Cambridge. My research covers a range of overlapping topics in philosophy of cognitive science, metaphysics, aesthetics and applied ethics. My introductory book What is Philosophy of Mind? is available from Polity Press. For HPS I'll be leading Part II modules on the Ethics and Politics of Technology; Ethical Issues in Psychiatry and the Philosophy of Cognitive Science. I'm also DoS in HPS at Selwyn College and College Research Associate at Clare College. I'm partial to comics, cats and a good pot of tea.

Research interests

I'm currently focussing on the concept of affordances for mental action. Long-standing work in philosophy and psychology suggests that we see our environment in terms of the bodily actions we can perform in it e.g. you might perceive a teapot as affording gripping. I suggest we also see our environment in terms of the mental actions available to us. That is, you might perceive affordances to attend, to imagine, to deliberate etc. I've been exploring how findings in psychology and psychiatry can be helpfully reframed in terms of mental affordances and identifying avenues for future empirical research.

I've also been exploring how social inequalities might shape our perception. With Paulina Sliwa I've been working on the hypothesis that gender inequalities in the performance of domestic tasks may be underwritten by socially-mediated differences in how affordances for domestic tasks are perceived. More generally, I'm interested in the idea that perceptual experiences (or patterns of perceptual experience) are ethically evaluable.

Other topics I've worked on include: the contents of perception; mental action; cognitive phenomenology; self-consciousness; self-hood; artificial consciousness and artificial creativity; the metaphysics of consciousness; salience and attention; the limits of scientific enquiry; pathologies of agency and ownership; and the philosophy of film.

Tom Stafford

I study learning and decision making. My main focus is the movement system – the idea being that if we can understand the intelligence of simple actions we will have an excellent handle on intelligence more generally. My research looks at simple decision making, and simple skill learning, using measures of behaviour informed by the computational, robotics and neuroscience work done in the wider group.

Tomás Finn

Lecturer in History, University of Galway
Tomás Finn is a lecturer in History at the University of Galway. He specialises in Irish and British history. An internationally recognised scholar, he is regarded as an authority on modern Irish political history. His research and publications have made a significant contribution to historical scholarship. The importance of his prize winning book on Tuairim in understanding the evolving intellectual climate in Ireland and its role in persuading governmental institutions to adopt new policies and a chapter on Donal Barrington, the Supreme Court Judge, in an edited volume have shown that public intellectuals in Ireland and among its diaspora, in fact, did influence the key policy decisions that shaped modern Ireland. This concern with intellectuals and social movements and the process of modernisation is reflected in his current work. He is currently co-editing two books and has chapters in each of these, one on Youth Political Parties and the other Muintir na Tire, the rural social movement. His work thus reflects the Department of History and School of History and Philosophy's ongoing research strengths in the areas of Activism and Justice, Religion and Society and Childhood, Youth and Family. He focuses on the intersection between intellectuals, civil society and church and state in understanding the process of modernisation.

Tomas Krajnik

Associate professor in robotics, Czech Technical University
I am working in the mobile robotics domain with a particular focus on long-term mobile robot navigation in changing environments. During my earlier work, I developed a robust visual navigation algorithm that allows autonomous operation of aerial and ground robots in outdoor environments that exhibit seasonal appearance variations. Later, I proposed to model the uncertainty of environment states by their frequency spectra, which improves long-term mobile robot autonomy in changing environments, see the FreMEn method.

As part of my work, I also implemented software libraries for fast visual tracking and UAV control, which were used by the roboticists of the NASA, EPFL, KIT, AIT etc, and contributed to our success during the Mohammed bin Zayeed Robotics Challenge and DARPA Subterranean Tunnel Circuit. I cooperated with several research institutes all across the globe and I was invited to present my work at world-leading laboratories including CSAIL@MIT, GRASP@UPENN, Oxford or ETH.

My research interests include long-term autonomy, robot vision and aerial robotics.

Tonya Lander

Stipendiary Lecturer in Biology, University of Oxford
I am the lead tutor for biology students in Christ Church College.

The global decline of pollinators, linked to the loss of native ecosystems, constitutes a serious threat to ecosystem function and human food security. There is a dearth of empirical research combining data about landscape, pollinator behaviour, and pollen flow, and yet this information is essential for effective management and conservation plans.

My research aims to improve our understanding of how bee behaviour is impacted by the spatial and temporal distribution of resources, and how this in turn affects pollen dispersal. The aim is to provide guidance that will help to protect pollinators, the plants they pollinate, and pollination services in human-modified landscapes. I am also a member of the Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food.

Torbjörn Tännsjö

Professor of Practical Philosophy, Stockholm University
Ulf Torbjörn Harald Tännsjö is a Swedish professor of philosophy and public intellectual. He has held a chair in Practical Philosophy at Stockholm University since 2002 and he is Affiliated Professor of Medical Ethics at Karolinska Institute. Tännsjö was Associate Professor of Philosophy at Stockholm University from 1976 to 1993 and Research Fellow in Political Philosophy at the Swedish Research Council in the Humanities and Social Sciences between 1993 and 1995. Thereafter, he was a professor of Practical Philosophy at Göteborg University 1995–2001.

Tännsjö has been a member of the medical ethics board of the faculty of medicine at Göteborg University and the ethical committee of Karolinska Institute. He is a member of the medical ethics committee of The National Board of Health and Welfare (the Swedish Government agency responsible for the supervision, evaluation and monitoring of social services, health care and medical services, dental care, environmental health, and control of communicable diseases). Furthermore, he is a member of the editorial board of Monash Bioethics Review, Tidskrift för politisk filosofi (Journal for Political Philosophy), Philosophical Papers, the ethics section of the web psychiatric journal Psychomedia, Bioethics and the Journal of Controversial Ideas.

Tännsjö is one of the few Swedish philosophers who is frequently heard in the public debate. His distinctly utilitarian ethical views have made him a controversial figure, notably within the medical establishment and for the Swedish Christian Democrats.[1]

Tännsjö has been a member of the Left Party since 1970, and was involved in writing the first party programme after the party dropped the communist label in 1990.

In 2001, he debated analytic philosopher and Christian apologist William Lane Craig on the subject, "If God Is Dead, Is Everything Permitted?".[2]

Tännsjö is a supporter of the Campaign for the Establishment of a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly, an organisation which advocates for democratic reformation of the United Nations, and the creation of a more accountable international political system.[3]

Recently, Tännsjö has published, in Swedish, an intellectual autobiography in two volumes.[4][5] A review of the second volume by conservative historian of ideas Svante Nordin calls Tännsjö’s views on abortion, euthanasia and other issues in medical ethics “consistently crazy”. Nonetheless, Nordin praises Tännsjö's intellectual honesty and integrity, noting that he is “not primarily looking to show that [his] opponents are bad people, but rather that they are wrong. This means that he endeavors to present even the opponent's argument relatively clearly.”[6]
