Philosophy of Information and Information Processing

Month: March 2015

Date: March 27

Name: Philosophy of Information and Information Processing

Location: Pembroke College, Oxford, United Kingdom.


The overall objective of this workshop is to study open questions within the philosophy of information and information processing, with an emphasis on the value of observed information and its measurement. Interest in the philosophy, meaning and value of information goes back half a century but has rapidly increased recently with many new directions of research into the meaning, quantification and measures of information and its complexity. Theoretic advances in these directions will have a huge impact on a wide range of real world applications.
