Research Theme*
  • 人工知能の哲学:既存の哲学理論が人工知能研究に及ぼしてきた影響と、人工知能開発が哲学理論に及ぼす影響の両方の側面が考えられるが、現在関心があるのは後者である。AIの人格や責任問題のように、いままで自然人を前提に考えられてきた哲学理論の適用限界が明らかになってきた。どこまで既存理論を適用できるのか、適用できない部分について概念を改訂するとしたらどうすべきなのか、極力既存部分に影響しない形にしたいという方向性を守れるとしたら、どういう概念改訂なのか?を考えている。ほか、哲学・論理学の歴史や情報教育の研究も進めている。【略歴】立教大学大学院人工知能研究科・文学部教授。Ph.D. (Indiana University, Philosophy)。国立情報学研究所、東北大学理学部・文学部、立教大学理学部を経て現職。

      Grant number:20K20721

      Grant amount:\6370000 ( Direct Cost: \4900000 、 Indirect Cost:\1470000 )

      城壁建築の年代決定のための科学的な根拠を模索しようとする本研究は、建材(転用材、 礫石材、煉瓦材、接着用モルタル材)に注目して、建材の積み方の様式変化と、建材の風化による損耗度に注目する二つのアプローチを試みることとした。フィールドはリキア地方の沿岸から内陸にかけて、検討対象はこの地域の10~20程度の城壁とし、新型コロナウィルスによる海外渡航制限が解除されない場合には、建材の風化による損耗度に絞り、沖縄等の石灰岩製城壁を対象にデータを蓄積するとともに、調査の有効性を探ることとした。
      しかし緊急事態宣言に依って国内調査も不可能と判断し、実験室レベルでの弾性波速度試験機による強度試験・硬度測定試験を行った(遠方の研究分担者はリモートで参加)。リキア地方の石灰岩を含む多様な石材について試験的なデータを採取し、以下の課題が明らかとなった。
      1.同一測定物の複数回の測定結果が必ずしも安定しない。→測定対象物の表面劣化が進んでいる場合にはさらなるデータ収集の困難が予想され、対象物との接着面の工夫が必要になる。
      2.試料の不足から、建材の風化による損耗度を測定できない。→リキア地の城壁建築で用いられている石灰岩と煉瓦材・モルタル材の風化速度を予め推定するためには、多量の試料が必要である。もしトルコ・日本での現地調査ができない場合には、日本で入手可能で「物性的にリキアの石灰岩と最も近い石材」を確定したうえで試料を集め、弾性波速度試験機によるデータの蓄積が必要である。

      Even though the percentage has increased in recent years, women still comprise only about ten percent of the over 1400 members of the Philosophical Association of Japan;this demonstrates that certain factors obstruct women's participation in philosophy as an academic discipline. We have been actively tackling various issues related to both gender-equality promotion and support for early career researchers. We administered questionnaire on these issues. Based on the new survey's results, we held discussions from a variety of perspectives to share "facts". We invited Dr. Joe Morrison, the director of British Philosophical Association, and learnt the“Good Practice Scheme”which has a considerable equality-related intellectual background in UK. We organised a number of workshops with British Philosophical Association, Tohoku Philosophical Association, Nishinihon Philosophical Association, Science Philosophy Association, Hokkaido Philosophical Association and Hiroshima University etc.

      In this research, we clarified the gap between the findings regarding "morality" obtained in various fields of natural science and the views that have traditionally been accepted in philosophy and ethics. Specifically, in philosophy and ethics, the mainstream view emphasizes individual autonomy and reason, but science has revealed that the emotional and physical factors, as well as social and environmental factors, also play important roles, and that these factors and rational factors are intricately intertwined to enable moral judgments. Based on this, we found a difficulty in the very framing of the problem as "making machines ethical" in the research field called "machine ethics," in which they attempt to make artificial intelligent systems and robots that are capable of moral judgments and/or moral actions.

      "The singularity argument," or the alleged claim that AI will annihilate human beings, was viral at the moment of the project proposal, although it has little evidence via immature argument. We pointed out the gaps and also necessities of revising the fundamental notions of personality, humanity, and responsibility. Our claims are getting vindicated via proposals by German government and EU congress toward considering e-personality.
      Logical investigations are still on the way and we wish to develop the theory more deeply in the future.
      We also focus on much details of academic usage of AI in research and K-12 education. In academic research substitution of human beings with AI will rather help advanced research by human. In K-12, more detailed analysis of contents of moral dilemmas should be arranged for each cluster of learners. We hope to classify cases of moral dilemmas for educational levels in the future.

      First, we found that there had been conceptions of privacy in Japan before the first trial concerning privacy invasion in the 1960s by philosophical and historical studies, and described the logical form of information flow norms with respect to privacy in the framework of the situational logic. Second, The research representative studied and translated one of the newest books on jurisprudential theory on the ambiguity and context-dependency of privacy, based on the work above. Thirdly, the representative determined that harm that stems from invasions of privacy derived from an absence of moral autonomy and a lack of freedom of self-representation by studying the work of information ethicist van den Hoven and that of sociologist Goffman . Furthermore, the representative organized a study group on information ethics in Japan, and edited a college textbook on information ethics that was written by that group's members.

      Grant amount:\8450000 ( Direct Cost: \6500000 、 Indirect Cost:\1950000 )

      The first important result of this research project is the re-examination and theoretical expansion of both critical thinking and science, technology and society(STS). Critical thinking as an abstract thinking skill is substantiated using STS themes, and the notion of meta-critical thinking(meta CT) was introduced to locate bilateral communication and pseudoscience issues in the context of critical thinking. On the side of STS, in the discussion of how to incorporate critical thinking into STS, a thinking process was proposed to relativize two models of communication(deficit vs. bilateral communication) and to utilize them in proper contexts.
      The other important research result is the creation of a educational format, i. e. critical thinking blended with STS(CT-STS), which has a balanced treatment of both abstract and concrete aspects of the two fields. The format is that opposing viewpoints are juxtaposed as thinking material, and skills and knowledge relevant to the interpretation of the opposition are provided alongside. The blending is not just a matter of efficiency in education. What this research presented is a way to present a unified perspective on seemingly unrelated(or even conflicting) styles of thinking ; as a result, the proposed educational material include something totally new, that is, educational material that encourage to reflect on desirability of critical thinking itself.

      We created a new model for science communication based on discursive ethics. For this purpose we organized a few occasions for the discussion of how to manage nuclear waste and analyzed the way the discussion went. We learnt the followings:
      1. It is unlikely that people with opposing views come to total agreement through discussion. Nonetheless, it is important for us to continue dialogue and try to reach a reasonable agreement.
      2. A dialogue between experts committed to different positions can be valuable especially when general citizens watch it and are informed and educated so as to form or revise their views.
      3. For a dialogue to be fruitful, there has to be mutual trust among participants, and they have to have certain empathic capacities among other things.
      4. A moderator of a dialogue has to be fair, but fairness is different from mere formal neutrality. To be fair one has to be able to make sorts of value judgments properly.

      Grant number:00J06372

      Grant amount:\3600000 ( Direct Cost: \3600000 )

      平成14年度は、前年度に引き続いて非正規様相論理の理論を展開するとともに、特に哲学理論への応用に関する方法論的検討を中心に研究を進めた結果を学会・ワークショップにて発表した。
      2002年6月には「様相は必然性ではない」(科学基礎論学会、東京工業大学)で、人工知能などさまざまな分野への様相論理の応用が進展する一方で、哲学的限界の打開という問題に対してはいまだに試行錯誤が続いている状況への対策として、ともすれば狭義に捉えられ必然性と同一視されることすらある様相概念をより広い文脈で捉えなおす必要があることを論じた。
      2002年11月には"Non-monotonic modalities : philosophical motivations and applications"と題する講演(京都科学哲学コロキアム、京大会館)を行い、哲学的論理学という学問分野全体における様相論理の理論と応用の位置づけに関する方法論的考察を示した。
      さらに、2003年2月には講演"Beyond bare monotonicity"(言語・行為・認知ワークショップ、北海道大学)を行い、特に言語行為にまつわる概念を様相論理を用いた哲学的論理学のアプローチで処理した場合のパラドクス現象に注目することにより、非正規様相論理に焦点を当てた場合においても応用の目的にあわせて適切な意味論と論理体系を提示することの重要性を強調した。
      また、2003年3月の講演「様相アプローチ検討」(名古屋哲学フォーラム、南山大学)では、それまでの研究で明らかになった問題を解決するために「言語行為では最大情報をもたらさなければならない」(最大情報性仮説)を提案するとともに、最大情報性を様相論理の枠組で把握するための予備的考察として階層化された可能世界を認めるべきであるという「分割主義」の考え方を新たに提示した。
      また理論的背景となる「様相論理」「不完全性定理」「自己言及」について、『AI事典』(土屋俊他編、共立出版)項目として執筆し、人工知能の基礎研究としての論理学の応用可能性について論じた。
