Björn Lundgren

Ph.D., Philosophy

I am a researcher at the Institute for Futures Studies. In 2018 I defended my thesis at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). My dissertation concerned ethical and epistemical challenges in the information society. My research is primarily about information, information security, privacy, anonymity, and AI-technology. But I have also written about questions concerning metaphysics and the concept of social housing.

Currently, I am leading a project on self-driving cars, funded by Trafikverket (the Swedish Transport Administration). The project is part of the Institute’s theme: New technologies and the future of humanity.
