Sille Obelitz Søe

Associate Professor

My research lies within philosophy of information – including privacy studies, surveillance studies, information ethics, philosophy of technology, philosophy of language, and epistemology – dealing with conceptual questions regarding the relations between information, humans, and (digital) technologies. My contributions to philosophy of information span from conceptualizations of information, misinformation, and disinformation, over analyses of personal information in relation to privacy in a datafied society, to analyses of the differences between humans and digital technologies in regard to surveillance practices, prediction, and knowledge production.

I am currently part of the collaborative, inter-disciplinary research project “Don’t Take it Personal” – Privacy and Information in an Algorithmic Age, funded by Independent Research Fund Denmark.

I am PI on the project Absence of information in decision-making processes (Absence) funded by Independent Research Fund Denmark.

I am part of the project Automating Welfare (AUTO-WELF) funded by the EU's CHANSE program.

And I am chair and organizer of the interdisciplinary network Internet and Society located at University of Copenhagen.
