G. Primiero, D. Ceolin, F. Doneda, A computational model for assessing experts’ trustworthiness, in Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Artificial Intelligence https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/0952813X.2023.2183272
We introduce an algorithmic model for automatically generating a dynamic trustworthiness hierarchy among information sources based on several parameters, including fact-checking. The method is novel and significant, especially in two respects: first, the generated hierarchy represents a helpful tool for laypeople to navigate experts’ debates; second, it also allows to identify and overcome biases generated by intuitive rankings held by agents at the beginning of the debates.
They say that no publicity is bad publicity. This might thus apply also to critical analyses of my book On the Foundations of Computing (OUP 2019). Jokes aside, I am very thankful to a number of colleagues who have invested their time to express their thoughts (some critical, some praising) on specific topics touched upon in my book. These have appeared as articles in the Journal Axiomathes – Global Philosophy (Springer). The list is:

I wish to thank all authors and I hope to provide soon an articulated reply to their comments.

This list is yet incomplete, stay tuned.
The Second Call for Paper for the Logic Colloquium 2023
The conference is co-organised by the Logic Uncertainty Computation and Information Group at the Department of Philosophy of the UNiversity of Milan together with the Departments of Mathematics, Computer Science and Historical Studies.
Join us for the Logic event of the Associaton for Symbolic Logic
BRIO is the MUR funded project on BIAS, RISK and Opacity in AI which I am leading as Principal Investigator. It officially started only in June 2022, but we already have done quite some work:
We are currently hiring a new post-doc. For all other updates visit this page.
This is the first of a new series of notes posted to my professional website straightforward from my digital garden based on #obsidian. I will try maintaining a more constant presence on the News section of my website through this new method. Good digital gardening to everyone in 2023.
The Ministry of University and Research has funded the 3-year research project “BRIO – BIAS, RISK, OPACITY in AI: design, verification and development of Trustworthy AI.” under the PRIN Scheme (Project no. 2020SSKZ7R).
I will lead the research consortium which includes researchers from the Politecnico di Milano, Università degli Studi di Genova, Istituto di Scienze e Tecnologia della Cognizione CNR Trento, and Università degli Studi Napoli.
Info and updates will be made available on the website
I am joining the scientific board at Soffos.ai, a company developing the next generation of conversational AIs.
