Profil

Donal Khosrowi ist seit Oktober 2019 wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter (Postdoc) am Lehrstuhl für theoretische Philosophie (Prof. Frisch). Seine aktuelle Forschung konzentriert sich auf:

1) Künstliche Intelligenz (KI) und die erkenntnistheoretischen und ethischen Fragen die KI-Systeme aufwerfen, beispielsweise beim Erzeugen von Bildern und Texten mithilfe generativer KI wie StableDiffusion oder ChatGPT, oder im Kontext wissenschaftlicher Entdeckungen, wie z.B. beim Identifizieren von Proteinstrukturen mithilfe von Systemen wie AlphaFold 2.0.

2) Wissenschaftliche Modelle, Simulationen und Experimente und die Frage welche Eigenschaften diese Werkzeuge jeweils nützlich machen, voneinander unterscheiden, und welche Synergien es zwischen ihnen geben kann. 

3) Wissenschaftstheorie der Sozialwissenschaften; insbesondere mit Bezug auf die Frage welche Rolle moralische Werte in der Formulierung wissenschaftlicher Methodologien spielen dürfen und sollten.

4) Wissenschaftstheorie der Ökonomik; insbesondere mit Bezug auf kausale Inferenz mithilfe experimenteller und quasi-experimenteller Methoden und die Frage wie kausale Schlussfolgerungen durch die Integration verschiedener Arten von Evidenz (z.B. qualitativer und quantitativer) erlangt werden können.

Schwerpunkte in Forschung und Lehre

  • Kausale Inferenz in den Sozialwissenschaften
  • Die Rolle von Werten in den Wissenschaften
  • Bias und Wertgeladenheit in AI
  • Epistemologie und Methodologie der AI-Forschung
  • Extrapolation kausaler Effekte
  • Wissenschaftliche Repräsentation mithilfe von Modellen und Simulationen
