The Human+ research fellowship programme at Trinity College Dublin is an interdisciplinary programme connecting computer science researchers with researchers from the arts and humanities and enterprise to forge a human-centric approach to technology development for the long-term betterment of society. Cofunded by the European Commission’s Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions, the project will appoint up to 18 experienced researchers for a 2-year post-doctoral programme.
In collaboration with its inaugural fellows, the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute and ADAPT, the world-leading SFI Research Centre for AI-Driven Digital Content Technology at Trinity College Dublin, are delighted to present a new discussion series ‘Human+ Tech Talks’ which will showcase the pioneering research topics of the fellows in conversation with their multi-disciplinary teams of supervisors and enterprise mentors and other key specialists in this area. Through this series, we’ll be addressing some key questions such as:
• How do humans engage with digital avators and personas?
• What value could personalisation bring for education?
• How does humanity’s engagement with digital media change social engagement in the long run?
• How can we re-configure the future of social machines with human insights?
• How do we build AI applications people can trust?
