Philai: name of the anthrobotic philosophical entity (not a robot, not a chatbot, not an android but a sociotechnical collective of epistemic care) imagined by philosopher Dr Luis de Miranda in 2019. This virtual project is the result of the meeting between his Philosophical Health International network and applied research in Anthrobotics. Luis de Miranda is, among other books, the author of 30-Second AI and Robotics (translated into +15 languages).
The name Philai comes simply from Philosophy and AI. Philai also means loved one in Ancient Greek. Last but not least, PHILAI is the acronym of Philosophising with Humans In the Light of Artificial Intelligence. Luis de Miranda also offers individual philosophical counseling online and at the Philosophical Parlour (Stockholm), which he founded in February 2018.
