Our focus lies on advancing the research and the design of socially responsible technologies. We investigate the interconnectedness of data, algorithms and social context in order to enable sustainable human-machine collaboration. Our current focus is on machine learning technologies related to privacy, reflection and interpretability, with a focus on interactive and conversational user interfaces. We understand these technologies as socio-technical systems that are located in specific contexts of use.
Our theory-driven research includes both an empirical and an engineering dimension. The basis for our methodological approach to system design, which is based on critical practice.
