Andre Ye


I am an honors, Phi Beta Kappa, and Mary Gates scholar at the University of Washington studying philosophy and computer science, minoring in mathematics and history. My current specific research interests are twofold: (i.) how can we design non-human intelligences to aid human philosophical practice and address metaphilosophical problems? (ii.) how can philosophical concerns and insights help us build better AI and human-AI interactions? My general intellectual interests include phenomenology, philosophy of science, human-computer interaction, and computer vision. Please see my research agenda and CV for more details. I have written a few essays in philosophy, two books on deep learning, a little bit of fiction, and many data science articles. My email is andreye [at] uw [dot] edu.
