Hu­mans and ma­chines as team part­ners

Advances in the field of artificial intelligence offer new design options for reorganizing knowledge work at the interface between humans and AI. The differences in the abilities and skills of humans and machines create new design challenges that this research project will address. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with 1.9 million euros. The AI junior research group in Kassel is headed by Dr. Sarah Oeste-Reiß.

Chat rooms and working from home - the boundary between the professional and private worlds is becoming increasingly blurred, and privacy is is being challenged by digital technology. Instead of banning technology, researchers at the ITeG are focusing on so-called "nudges": little helpers for smart behavior.
