The Research Center for Information System Design (ITeG) at Kassel University stands for 15 years of successful interdisciplinary IT development. ITeG brings together working groups from different disciplines (computer science, information systems, psychology, human-machine systems engineering, law and sociology).

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.
