Dr. Simon D’Alfonso
As an undergraduate, I doubled majored in philosophy and computer science. This blog was created in 2009 when I started my postgraduate work and I still add to it when I can. Completed in 2012 at the University of Melbourne via the philosophy department, my thesis ‘Towards a Framework for Semantic Information’ addresses some important questions regarding an account of semantic information and looks at how the concept of information can be applied to epistemology.
After completing my PhD I found work in the School of Computing and Information Systems within the University of Melbourne and am currently a research fellow there, where my work is mainly in the areas of artificial intelligence and e-psychology/cyberpsychology.
