How has your philosophical training influenced your life and career? In the midst of an aerospace engineering career, I pursued a prior interest in artificial intelligence to become a practitioner of AI. This proved interesting as a practical test to add to my understanding of the philosophical issues of minds and machines.
Any current engagement with philosophy? Followed the more popular books on philosophy of mind (Nagel, Dennett, Searle, Alva Noe).
