It is my honour to speak with Professor Luciano Floridi this month on subjects like information philosophy: “philosophy or our time, for our time”; understanding that mistakes happen in technology whether they’re design issues, bugs or oversights at big companies; what is the meaning of life in the digital world? And much much more.
