Logic and Philosophy of Science Group Talk (Francesca Zaffora Blando, Carnegie Mellon)

Thursday April 6, 2023, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Logic and Philosophy of Science Group is pleased to welcome guest speaker Francesca Zaffora Blando, an assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Zaffora Blando specializes in logic, formal epistemology, and the philosophy of science—in particular, the philosophy of probability and induction. Most of her work is devoted to showing that the theory of algorithmic randomness—a branch of  computability  theory—can be fruitfully applied to shed light on the foundations of inductive learning.
