Personal profile

Personal information

Hein Duijf works as a postdoctoral researcher on the project titled “the Social Epistemology of Argumentation”. Previously, he was engaged as a PhD candidate and as a postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University on the project titled “Responsible Intelligent Systems”. His interdisciplinary research merges his interests in philosophy, (micro-)economics, and artificial intelligence. His current work embraces three interdependent subjects: responsibility, cooperation, and argumentation. To understand these issues more rigorously and more generally, he develops and uses mathematical frameworks. His work has been published in peer-reviewed academic journals and peer-reviewed conference proceedings.

In his PhD thesis titled “Let's do it! Collective responsibility, joint action, and participation” (cum laude), he has focused on the problem of so-called responsibility voids. These are situations in which a group is collectively responsible for a given outcome even though none of its members can be held responsible for their involvement.

He has taught courses in mathematics, logic, artificial intelligence, and philosophy of action and the social sciences. He has been involved as a teaching assistant in the educational programs of Artificial Intelligence and Philosophy at Utrecht University and of Mathematics at the Radboud University Nijmegen.
