Exploring the connection between humans and technology
Research of the Human-Technology Interaction (HTI) group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) focuses on social and cognitive psychology and persuasion, analyzing how humans interact with technology in ways that work best for them and for society at at large.
Behavioral sciences can deliver value to a society suffused with technology, based on solid theory and a methodological approach. By studying technology and how it relates to humans and human well-being, the group develops and contributes to new scientific niches at the crossroads between humans and technology, whilst contributing to its core disciplinary domains. In this way, HTI and TU/e help new technologies deliver the greatest possible benefits without losing sight of the human factor.
