Digital Interactions Lab. A new research group at the Informatics Institute.
The Digital Interactions Lab. Our research bridges the gap between the technology-oriented and market-led formulation of the smart agenda with a sociological and psychological understanding of what people need artificial intelligence to be, and how data science might enhance our societies. This is a research group within the Informatics Institute at the University of Amsterdam.
Judith Good, chair of the group: ‘There are broad societal issues around agency, trust and ethics which must be considered in the context of how data is gathered and used. There is also increasing debate around the appropriate role for sensors, algorithms, etc. in our everyday lives. Fortunately, this is leading to a heightened awareness of the relative roles of artificial and human intelligence, with a focus on technologies which can augment human capacity rather than attempting to emulate it.’
