About me

I work as associate professor in the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, ul. Nowy Świat 72, 00-330 Warszawa, Poland. E-mail: marcin.milkowski@gmail.com

In 2013, I published a book Explaining the Computational Mind (MIT Press, Cambridge, Mass.) on computational explanation in cognitive science. The book was the basis of my habilitation in Poland (something like tenure).

Right now, my project is Cognitive Science in Search of Unity – a 5-year project funded by the National Science Centre, and I’m building a team of philosophers of cognitive science who deal with question of unification and mechanistic integration of models.

I am associate editor of European Journal for the Philosophy of Science, editor in Paladyn. Journal of Behavioral Robotics, and member of the advisory board of Avant. Trends in Interdisciplinary Studies, Kognitywistyka i Media w Edukacji and Philosphical Alternatives.

Since the time I have created the first version of this webpage, which was in 1998, I have worked in computer linguistics, especially in lexicography (creating dictionaries using computer methods) and in computer-aided proofreading. The first major work I did was the English-Polish IT dictionary, which is was then improved for IDG. A new, improved version was published by C.H. Beck , including a Polish-English part that was created for the first time originally for Polish (and not as a translation of another dictionary). My last dictionary project was to build the biggest English-Polish and Polish-English dictionary ever. However, given that publishing industry is not interested in this project anymore, the Polish-English volume is unlikely to be finished anytime soon.

I also work on a Polish morphosyntactic lexicon in Morfologik project, and develop the proof-reading tool LanguageTool. With Daniel Naber, we received a Gold Prize in Sun Community Innovation Program for our work on LanguageTool. I’ve also created a Polish thesaurus. The icon you see below shows how I’m involved in various open-source projects (it’s clickable).
