Professor of philosophy

Einar Duenger Bohn

Professor of philosophy at the University of Agder. Einar Duenger Bohn was born (1977) and raised in Vormsund, Norway. He has a BA in psychology and philosophy and an MA in philosophy from the University of Oslo. He got his PhD in philosophy from the University of Massachusetts Amherst (2009). His current interest in artificial intelligence (and artificial life) is growing exponentially, and very soon it will be the only thing he is interested in. Right now he is obsessed with the question whether it is possible to create artificial consciousness, and what the answer to that question tells us about our own consciousness and moral thinking. He greatly fears the singularity without the systems being conscious and morally aware. Bohn also has a theory of the meaning of life according to which it's in accordance with the meaning of life to develop as much technology as we can, as long as it's for the better for all. Bohn considers himself a modest transhumanist.
