A report on Computer science and Epistemology

Charles Babbage, sometimes referred to as the "father of computing".
René Descartes, who is often credited as the father of modern philosophy, was often preoccupied with epistemological questions in his work.
Ada Lovelace published the first algorithm intended for processing on a computer.
Bertrand Russell famously brought attention to the distinction between propositional knowledge and knowledge by acquaintance.
An Euler diagram representing a version of the traditional definition of knowledge that is adapted to the Gettier problem. This problem gives us reason to think that not all justified true beliefs constitute knowledge.
The analytic–synthetic distinction was first proposed by Immanuel Kant.
David Hume, one of the most staunch defenders of empiricism.

In the early days of computing, a number of terms for the practitioners of the field of computing were suggested in the Communications of the ACM—turingineer, turologist, flow-charts-man, applied meta-mathematician, and applied epistemologist.

- Computer science

Work in this area spans several academic fields, including philosophy, computer science, economics, and statistics.
