The CPT brings together philosophers, designers, artists, scientists and critical and creative practitioners to critique and reimagine the relation between philosophical inquiry and technological development in the 21st century and beyond. ( )
The CPT ) thinks about philosophy and technology as mutually transformative: philosophy is a technicity that can be put to work in the world and technology is a conceptual practice that proposes ways of living. So conceived, the Center investigates philosophical technologies at every scale: from the computational technologies used in artificial intelligence and machine learning, bioinformatics, and planetary infrastructure design to the analog technologies used in storytelling, ecological communication, and urban community building. The CPT engages these diverse scales of technical experience in order to conceive a hybrid species where philosophy and technology meet. A philosophical technology is critically engaged, ecologically embedded, and speculatively framed.
