Maclure from Laval to McGill


Jocelyn Maclure, previously a professor of philosophy at Laval University, has been hired by McGill University as the Stephen A. Jarislowsky Chair on Human Nature and Technology.

The chair is the result of a C$2 million (approximately $1.5 million) donation from Canadian investor and philanthropist Stephen A. Jarislowsky, aimed at bringing together “a deep understanding of new technology along with a strong philosophical perspective on the many issues inherent in the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other technologies which are rapidly changing our world.”

Professor Maclure works in political philosophy, ethics, and on philosophical issues in artificial intelligence and medical ethics. You can learn more about his research and writing here, and some of his public facing work here.
