Dr. Sebastian Rosengrün
Senior Lecturer in Science, Technology and Society
Sebastian is a quirky logician who loves to twist your arguments until they fall apart. His areas of specialisation are philosophy of language, metaphysics and the philosophy of (digital) technologies, even though he sometimes secretly enjoys existentialist literature and Scandinavian art movies.
Before coming to CODE, he has been proofing the existence of unicorns in his PhD on ‘Kripke’s Metaphysics of Possible Worlds’ and experimenting with various teaching formats at the Universities of Augsburg and Bamberg. His habilitation project focusses on the nature of Artificial Intelligence and all related philosophical concepts.
Sebastian is the only programmer at CODE that does not feel embarrassed by using PHP, but he also knows how to train a neural network in Python. Even more than proper coding, he wants to understand how technology influences our society and our human nature, how humans and computers think — about each other and about themselves, and what it means to act responsibly and according to our thinking.
He joined CODE first and foremost because he wants to learn more about that together with you. He is quite passionate about sharing his knowledge and experiences, and if you want to know more about his work, he sometimes even enjoys just having a coffee with you.
