LOOPS - A panel discussion with John-Dylan Haynes, AA Cavia & Beate Krickel

LOOPS is organized by students of the design&computation master program at TU Berlin/UdK Berlin. The topic was whether or how AI forces us to rethink our concept of intelligence. I use the example of unconscious vision to show how I think we should deal with conceptual changes due to technological and scientific advances.

Video online: public talk "Can Cells Cause Behaviors of Organisms?"

​I was invited by the Department for Biophysics in Bremen to give a talk in their public lecture series. In the talk, I discuss the question whether biological parts and wholes can causally interact, why philosophers think that that's impossible, and why I think that part-whole causation would be good to have and how we can have it.
