Record of previous research

[2016 – current] Morphological Computing MORCOM@COGS Swedish Research council project

[2000 – current] Research in Philosophy of Information, Computing and Philosophy, Philosophy of Computer Science and Computer Ethics. Collaboration and contacts with: Luciano Floridi, University of Oxford; Lorenzo Magnani, University of Pavia; Susan Stuart, Glasgow University, Pedro Marijuán, University of Zaragoza, Gang Liu, Deputy Director of Philosophy of Sci. and Tech. Div., Inst. of Philosophy, Chinese Academy of Soc.
