Silvia Milano is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Oxford Internet Institute and a member of the Digital Ethics Lab (DELab). Her research interests lie primarily in epistemology, ethics, and the philosophy of Artificial Intelligence, and intersections between the three. In formal epistemology, she works on beliefs de se or self-locating beliefs, and Bayesian accounts of self-locating uncertainty. Her essay on this topic, "Bayesian Beauty", was awarded the 2017/18 LSE Philosophy Popper Prize. Her current work in population ethics focuses on the ethical issues posed by human population growth, and her current work in the philosophy of Artificial Intelligence explores the ethical impact of Artificial Intelligence particularly as it is applied to manage uncertainty and to filter the information available to human users.
