The Junior Research Group "Digitale Mündigkeit" is located at the Chair of "Communication Science" and the Human-Computer Interaction Center (HCIC) of the RWTH Aachen and is headed by Dr. Dipl.-Inform. André Calero Valdez.
The research focus of the junior research group is the interaction of humans and algorithms. One of the goals of the junior research group is to investigate how a suitable interaction between humans and algorithms should be designed. The influence of artificial intelligence, algorithms such as recommender systems and the influence of human factors will be investigated. The junior research group tries to understand phenomena by means of agent-based modeling, machine learning and information visualization.
The junior research group is integrated in the Human-Computer Interaction Center (HCIC) of RWTH Aachen University. We are a team of about 40 scientists and students and put emphasis on the fact that scientific work should be fun, interdisciplinary integrated and practically applicable.
