Silvia Milano

Welcome to my website. 

I am a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy in the SPA Department and Egenis centre at the University of Exeter, and a Humboldt Fellow at the LMU Munich, based at the Munich Centre for Mathematical Philosophy

Previously, I was a Research Fellow at the Future of Humanity Institute (FHI) in the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford and  William Golding Junior Research Fellow at Brasenose College. Before that, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Oxford Internet Institute, where I remain affiliated with the Governance of Emerging Technologies (GET) research programme. I completed a PhD in Philosophy at the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2018. 

My interests lie primarily in epistemology, ethics, and intersections between the two, especially in connection with Artificial Intelligence. My current research investigates epistemological and ethical issues relating to recommender systems. You can find more on my past and current projects on my Research page.  

Ada Lovelace Institute Report: Inform, educate, entertain... and recommend? Exploring the use and ethics of recommendation systems in public service media, co authored with Elliot Jones, Catherine Miller, and with substantial contributions from Andrew Strait (November 2022).
