Data and Computational Ethics Research Group


The Data and Computational Ethics Research Group consists of staff and postgraduate students in the Stellenbosch University Philosophy Department, as well as various research affiliates from around the University and beyond. The aim of the group is to connect researchers specialising in Data and Computational Ethics and closely related subjects, such as the metaphysics and epistemology of data and computational technologies.


  • A special issue of Ethics and Information Technology has just been published, edited by our Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Samuel Segun, with a contribution by Research Group collaborator, Fabio Tollon.
