The Research Center for Information System Design (ITeG) at Kassel University stands for more than 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).
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.
Advances in the field of AI offer new design options for reorganizing knowledge work at the interface between humans and AI. The differences in the abilities 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).
