David Bates At Google

Prof. David Bates (Rhetoric) helped organize, with Harry Halpin (MIT) and Peter Norvig (Google), a day-long seminar on “Philosophy of the Web,” hosted by Google on their campus. Invited participants included philosophers, psychologists, computer scientists, lawyers, and engineers. Berkeley participants were Herbert Dreyfus and Alva Nöe from Philosophy, and Tania Lombrozo and Alison Gopnick from Psychology. A talk by the philosopher Andy Clark (Edinburgh) on the “predictive brain” and its technological extension ended the gathering. The Rhetoric department helped support the event.
