FU Ber­lin - Mathe­ma­tik und Infor­ma­tik, Insti­tut für Infor­ma­tik, Human-Cen­te­red Com­pu­tin (HCC) Rese­arch Group

The Human-Cen­te­red Com­pu­ting Rese­arch Group (HCC) rep­res­ents an inter­di­sci­pli­nary team in the field of col­la­bo­ra­tive com­pu­ting and human-machine inter­ac­tion. The focus is to advance rese­arch and design of soci­ally respon­si­ble tech­no­lo­gies by ana­ly­zing the intert­wi­ning of data, algo­rithms and social con­text to enable sustainable human-machine col­la­bo­ra­tion. The cur­rent focus is on machine lear­ning tech­no­lo­gies rela­ted to issues of pri­vacy, reflec­tion and explana­tion through inter­ac­tive and con­ver­sa­tio­nal user inter­faces. We under­stand these tech­no­lo­gies as socio-tech­ni­cal sys­tems that are situa­ted in spe­ci­fic con­texts of use. This is also the basis for our metho­do­lo­gi­cal approach to sys­tem design, which is based on cri­ti­cal prac­tice.
