Raphaël Millière

Raphaël Millière is a philosopher who studies the philosophy of artificial intelligence, the mind, and cognitive science. He earned his PhD in 2020 from the University of Oxford, where he focused on self-representation. As a Presidential Scholar in Society and Neuroscience, he spent three years researching how people perceive themselves in virtual reality, exploring both theoretical and empirical aspects of spatial self-representation. Raphaël is also interested in understanding the strengths and limitations of deep artificial neural networks, especially in the context of creating convincing text and images. Today, he is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Philosophy at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia.
