Rune Nyrup

Postdoctoral Researcher

Biography

Rune Nyrup is a Research Associate on the Science, Value, and the Future of Intelligence project. Before joining CFI, Rune did a PhD in philosophy of science at Durham University and has previously studied and taught at the University of Copenhagen.

His research covers the role of different kinds of reasoning—e.g. analogical, explanatory, diagnostic—across the sciences, especially in relation to the question of pursuit worthiness, i.e., which hypotheses or models to prioritise for further investigation, and the proper role of ethical and political values in science. At the CFI, he is exploring these issues in relation to artificial intelligence, both as a field of research and as a technology. 

More information about his research can also be found at his webpage.
