The symposium of World Congress organised by AISB and IACAP. The Congress has been inspired by a desire to honour Alan Turing and by the broad and deep significance of Turing's work to AI and to the philosophical ramifications of computing.
The overall objective of this workshop is to study some of the open questions within philosophy of information with an emphasis on the study of the value of information and the philosophy of information processing.
Interest in the philosophy and meaning of information goes back half a century but has rapidly increased recently with many new directions of research into the meaning, quantification and measures of information and complexity as well as a vast range of applications across the scientific spectrum.
This meeting is the second Turing in Context event during the 2012 Turing centennial. The first was held at King's College, Cambridge, 18-19 February 2012. It was an outreach event for the general academic public with invited speakers only. Turing in Context II is a research meeting meant for experts in the fields touched by Turing's contributions to science.
