So, as is the main branch of philosophy dealing with knowledge, it would be reasonable to assume that (multiple) people tried to apply ideas from it to practical knowlegde-accumulating systems, including autonomous robots and scanners.

Yet, it does not seem to be the case, at least on the surface.


Is there any good example of attempt to use epistemological apparatus in practice ? Or maybe a book where such application is suggested ?

    Epistemology is more about justifying knowledge than accumulating it, so it is not really useful for learning robots, the theory of cognition is much more so. But look at Dreyfus's Why Heideggerian AI Failed for the parts of it that AI researchers were interested in.
