Though it is true that science can be bent to evil ends, it is more often the case that injustice creeps through the cracks of our ignorance

Dr Amnon H. Eden is a computer scientist serving as Principal Scientist at Sapience.org (thinktank).

Dr Eden gained his expertise through three decades academic research in parallel with his professional work as a director of technology, consulting professor, programmer, and software architect. He served a leading role in projects involving blockchain wallets, tokens, and transaction; algorithmic trading; machine learning for mining big data; and software project management (professional record).

Dr Eden serves as a strategic adviser for venture capital investors, blockchain startups, health organizations, policy makers, and charity groups on decisions requiring hands-on programming and software development experience in combination with broad, scientifically-informed academic research in computer science.

Dr Eden specialises in technological forecasting; machine learning models and algorithms; and software design and development.

Dr Eden served as a Lecturer and the Director of Undergraduate Studies at the School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Essex, and held academic posts in Israel Institute of Technology—Technion, Tel Aviv University, Uppsala University, and Concordia University, and fellowships at the Institute of Advanced Studies, Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Center For Inquiry.

Dr Eden received his education from Tel Aviv University, where he graduated the Interdisciplinary Program for Outstanding Students, and awarded a Master (Cum Laude) in Computer Science (machine learning) and a Doctorate in Computer Science (software engineering).

Dr Eden’s publications include his book Codecharts, the first entry on the Philosophy of Computer Science in Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, and his research in singularity hypotheses led to the publication of the first peer-reviewed comprehensive volume on superintelligence, and contributed to the areas of Design PatternsFormal MethodsObject-Oriented ProgrammingDevelopment Tools, and Software ArchitectureDesignEvolutionModellingVisualization, and Security.

Dr Eden’s research interests are generally concerned with the application of disruptive technologies and original thought to interdisciplinary questions, publishing his contributions to software engineering, artificial intelligence, and the philosophy of computer science in three of the highest ranking outlets in Google Scholar, including an award-winning paper in the ACM/IEEE Automated Software Engineering series.

Dr Eden has raised over 200,000 USD in research funding from research councils and co-raised 203,000 USD from the Software Engineering Institute.
