Research Groups

The IFK focuses on five themes, each championed by a research group: Data Science Across Disciplines, The Future of Health, Green Futures, The Future of Diplomacy, and Metaphysics and Machines.

Decentralised Artificial Intelligence and Control Systems

Artificial intelligence is altering how we understand the world. The Metaphysics and Machines Research Group explores the implications, including how the approach of developing machine learning solutions changes or deviates from traditional scientific methodologies, whether such new approaches can help develop new or alternative conceptual frameworks, whether machine learning can improve our grasp of complexity, and what we can learn about the relationship between prediction, explanation and causation.
