Der Sammelband untersucht Entwicklungen in der Wissenschaft, die in den letzten Jahren durch moderne Informationstechnologien und die zunehmende Verfügbarkeit von Daten angestoßen wurden. Aufgrund dieser neuen Ansätze werden eine Reihe von Phänomenen zum Beispiel aus den Sozial- oder den Lebenswissenschaften berechenbar, die zuvor als zu komplex für eine wissenschaftliche Analyse galten. Der Band versammelt Texte aus einer Vielzahl unterschiedlicher Perspektiven, von der Physik über die Sozial- und Kulturwissenschaften bis hin zur Informatik. Neben Beiträgen, die die aktuellen Entwicklungen direkt thematisieren, untersuchen andere Aufsätze zentrale Begriffe in unmittelbarem Zusammenhang wie Komplexität oder Information.

Colburn (computer science, U. of Minnesota-Duluth) has a doctorate in philosophy and an advanced degree in computer science; he's worked as a philosophy professor, a computer programmer, and a research scientist in artificial intelligence. Here he discusses the philosophical foundations of artificial intelligence; the new encounter of science and philosophy (logic, models of the mind and of reasoning, epistemology); and the philosophy of computer science (touching on math, abstraction, software, and ontology).

Information is a recognized fundamental notion across the sciences and humanities, which is crucial to understanding physical computation, communication, and human cognition. The Philosophy of Information brings together the most important perspectives on information. It includes major technical approaches, while also setting out the historical backgrounds of information as well as its contemporary role in many academic fields. Also, special unifying topics are high-lighted that play across many fields, while we also aim at identifying relevant themes for philosophical reflection. There is no established area yet of Philosophy of Information, and this Handbook can help shape one, making sure it is well grounded in scientific expertise. As a side benefit, a book like this can facilitate contacts and collaboration among diverse academic milieus sharing a common interest in information. • First overview of the formal and technical issues involved in the philosophy of information • Integrated presentation of major mathematical approaches to information, form computer science, information theory, and logic • Interdisciplinary themes across the traditional boundaries of natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

Spätestens mit Beginn des neuen Jahrtausends hat sich das Computerspiel gesellschaftlich als relevantes ästhetisches Medium durchgesetzt. Mit seiner zunehmenden Anerkennung als ästhetisches und künstlerisches Phänomen stellt sich auch die Frage nach seinen diesbezüglichen Eigenarten. Das vorliegende Buch klärt in philosophischer Perspektive Begriff, Ästhetik und Kunstcharakter des Computerspiels. Dabei lässt es sich von der Annahme leiten, dass die Konturen ästhetischer Medien beständig neuverhandelt werden. Die Lektion des Buches lautet somit, dass derjenige, der sich mit der Ästhetik des Computerspiels befasst, auch über die Ästhetik anderer Medien und Künste nachdenken muss.

The theme of this volume is the multi-faceted 'computational turn' that is occurring through the interaction of the disciplines of philosophy and computing. In computer and information sciences, there are significant conceptual and methodological questions that require reflection and analysis. Moreover, digital, information and communication technologies have had tremendous impact on society, which raises further philosophical questions. This book tries to facilitate the task to continuously work to ensure that its diversity of perspectives and methods proves a source of strength and collaboration rather than a source of instability and disintegration. The first three contributions explore the phenomenon of virtual worlds. The next four focus on robots and artificial agents. Then a group of chapters discusses the relation between human mentality and information processing in computers and the final section covers a broad range of issues at the interface of computers and society.

This edited book presents scientific results of the 12th IEEE/ACIS International Conference on Computer and Information Science (ICIS 2013) which was held on June 16-20, 2013 in Toki Messe, Niigata, Japan. The aim of this conference was to bring together scientists, engineers, computer users, and students to share their experiences and exchange new ideas, research results about all aspects (theory, applications and tools) of computer and information science, and to discuss the practical challenges encountered along the way and the solutions adopted to solve them The conference organizers selected the best 20 papers from those papers accepted for presentation at the conference. The papers were chosen based on review scores submitted by members of the program committee, and underwent further rigorous rounds of review.
