“Putting people first”

Humans and Technology

We focus on human-centered and value-sensitive approaches to technology understanding and design.. We investigate how different technologies can impact human mind, behaviour, and values, as well as how technologies should be designed for effective, sustainable, and responsible interaction with humans at individual, interpersonal, organizational and societal levels.

The expertise of the research theme Humans & Technology is unique in terms of its potential to translate and apply deep social scientific knowledge and methods from psychology, philosophy and ethics. We contribute to scientific insights and design methods that shape technological innovations, and help assess effects and implications of modern technology on human mind and behavior.
