A key challenge facing philosophers in the digital age is to discover how best to use computers to support our understanding of the discipline. As should be clear by now , we do not expect our text processing tools to write a compelling philosophy paper any time soon. Rather, we recognize what has long been true: that humans and computers work better together than either do in isolation. With careful collaboration, reliable represen- tations of the discipline can be created facilitating a wide range of future tasks in digital philosophy (several discussed below). Keeping future tasks such as the design of visu- ally-effective conceptual and thematic navigation tools in mind, we have tried not to 'OVERFIT' our methods and ontology to the present needs of the editorial staff of the SEP.
