Raphaël Millière

Raphaël Millière is a philosopher interested in the philosophy of mind, cognitive science, and artificial intelligence. Raphaël received his PhD in 2020 from the University of Oxford, where he developed a pluralist account of self-consciousness grounded in novel empirical evidence collected in collaboration with neuroscientists. As a Presidential Scholar, he investigates theoretical and empirical issues regarding spatial self-representation using virtual reality. He is also interested in the human-like capacities of artificial deep neural networks, with a particular focus on the semantic competence of neural language models. Raphaël is the 2020 Robert A. Burt Presidential Scholar in Society and Neuroscience.
