CfP for the Topical Collection “Information in Interactions between Humans and Machines”

E-Mail Adresse für Einreichungen: orsolya.friedrich@fernuni-hagen.de
Call-Bezeichnung: Call for Papers
Deadline: 31.03.2021
Name der Publikation: Topical Collection “Information in Interactions between Humans and Machines”

Current developments in AI-based technologies (especially in machine learning) open up new ways of data and information exchange in Human-Machine Interactions (HMI). This poses challenges on the individual and societal level.

The Topical Collection is dedicated to these challenges with a special focus on questions of describability, meaning and potential consequences of novel processes of information acquisition, processing, storage and exchange in the context of new HMIs.


Appropriate topics for submission include, among others:

• Questions regarding the concept of information: How can (qualitative) changes of the data obtained in HMIs, as well as their interpretation, collection and mediation, be described and understood theoretically?

• Epistemological questions: how do new forms of information shape our knowledge? What kind of epistemic problems arise? What problems are aggravated?

• Ethical questions: What opportunities and risks could arise in the exchange of information between humans and AI? What does information collected in new HMIs mean for questions of equal access, discrimination, or epistemic justice?


The Topical Collection will be published in Philosophy & Technology (editor-in-chief: Luciano Floridi).
