Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

Aims and goals. The aim of this course is to improve the capacity of computer engineering students to critically analyze some key concepts of computer science and engineering. The first part of the course will deal with the presentation of the conceptual tools to be used in the analysis. The second part will host the discussion of key concepts and issues of computer science and engineering. The third part will consist in the supervision of the final project.

 

Program of lessons and seminars

  1. Historical-conceptual introduction to philosophical problems of computer science: the philosophy of computer science and its topics; the disciplinary status of computer science and computer engineering; the reasons of a philosophical analysis.
