Online Workshop: Virtuous Formalization (?)
Location: Online via Zoom
Registration: Free but necessary, via https://forms.gle/AApLeuJKgVEFomHg9 or by email
This small workshop aims to bring together scholars working on formalization and the usage of formal tools. This includes both reflection on formalizations in general and practical work done in different areas. Formal tools should in particular include different methods from Artificial intelligence, including the older approaches focusing on symbolic reasoning and the newer trends focusing on statistical methods. There is a tendency to disregard mathematical tools either quite strongly, or see them uncritically or even as objective notions that might eliminate our human shortcomings like biases. But as every tool there are chances and risks formal methods offer us.
