Hello, I am Bruce Rushing, a philosopher of science and data scientist.

I do work in machine learning interpretability, statistical modeling, and data mining. I have graduate coursework in statistics, machine learning, scientific computing, artificial intelligence, neural networks, neural computation, probabilistic reasoning, causal modeling, and deep generative models. Please check out my project portfolio for examples of past projects I have worked on. I am also on GitHub.

My philosophical work focuses on the philosophy of F. P. Ramsey and, in particular, on his model of scientific theories in his philosophy of science, and my work also focuses on the philosophy of machine learning. I have a published paper on the No Free Lunch theorems and their applicability to the role of values in accepting scientific theories.

I have a Doctor of Philosophy in Philosophy from the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the University of California, Irvine. I am currently the Ross-Lynn Postdoctoral Fellow at Purdue University’s VRAI Lab.

If you would like to contact me, my email is brushing [at] uci [dot] edu.
