Research Experience


My research focuses on ethical issues related to the impact of AI on modern society. I am working on a draft of code of ethical action between scientists and machines (nonprotein scientist – AI).

Doctoral dissertation is devoted to the philosophical understanding of how robots and artificial intelligence function in autonomous vehicles. The aim of this dissertation is to identify solutions regarding the robotization and independence of machines as well as the transhumanist understanding of the world, taking into account the intercultural systems of two continents: Asia and Europe. Posthumanism, associated with the mass introduction of new technologies and solutions, requires the redefinition of many concepts, both in the field of philosophy and in the social sciences.

Research Interest   

  • Ethical issues of the new technologies.
  • Digitalization of society - opportunities and threats.
  • Automotive policy and the structure for building an ethical decision-making system in autonomous vehicles.
  • Metaverse as a platform for communication and business.
  • Social Media and its impact on the life of societies.
