Human-Centered Computing

The Human-Centered Computing (HCC) Research Group stands for an interdisciplinary team in the field of collaborative computing and human-computer interaction (HCI).

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.

The HCC Research Group is a creative, reflective and open environment. All team members are committed to open-source software, open science, and free access to knowledge.

Head of the group: Prof. Dr. Claudia Müller-Birn
