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

I work on 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 machine learning, emphasizing using better philosophy and math to improve our understanding of machine learning algorithms and on using machine learning to develop a better philosophy of science. I also work on F. P. Ramsey and, in particular, on his model of scientific theories in his philosophy of science and theory of decision-making under uncertainty.

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 in AI at Purdue University’s VRAI Lab.

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