I was educated at the University of Edinburgh, Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, the University of California at Berkeley (as a Fulbright-Hays Scholar), and the University of Cambridge (as an Andrew Carnegie Scholar). I have held various visiting scholarships/fellowships, including at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York University, and Georgetown University.
In 2000 Jack Copeland and I founded the online Turing Archive for the History of Computing, which was awarded the Encyclopedia Britannica Internet Guide Award for Excellence (2001) and the Scientific American Sci/Tech Award (2003). In 2000-2004 we received a Marsden Grant from the Royal Society of New Zealand for research into the philosophical foundations of cognitive and computer science. My current research is in the philosophy and history of Artificial Intelligence, Turing, Wittgenstein, philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of language, and the philosophy and psychology of religion.
