Aurelio Petrucci

Aurelio was an intern at the Intellectual Forum in 2020.

His research at the Intellectual Forum investigated the ethical implications of simulation technology. Focusing on utilitarianism, he explored how utility should be defined in the context of simulated realities and the subsequent implications that has for the moral condition in simulations and the wider physical world. From this, he drew conclusions both about how we should legislate for simulated realities, and how moral philosophy should change to properly accommodate the possibility of simulated realities. 

More broadly, Aurelio is interested in political philosophy and automation, the ethics of artificial intelligence, and the philosophy of architecture.
