Unlearning towards an uncertain future

Many approaches in the field of unlearning intend to understand the “what” and/or “how” of unlearning. In contrast, Markus Peschl suggests focusing on the “where-to” and the goal of unlearning. In all too many cases, unlearning starts with a distinct result in mind. But such an approach must be challenged in the context of a highly complex, uncertain world. Markus Peschl thus renders a mode of unlearning following a strategy of future-oriented open-endedness.
