Participatory & responsible AI: Understanding societal implications of and designing human-centered AI

This project is ongoing.

Our lab's mission is to build more just and empowering workplaces and cities by creating technology that strengthens individual and collective human decision-making. We have several projects that investigate the societal implications of AI and design AI to be fairer, participatory, and a tool for social good. We are an interdisciplinary team; we draw theories and methods from human-computer interaction, computer science, social sciences, and design. For more detail, please visit our website:

The Office of Undergraduate Research recommends that you attend an info session or advising before contacting faculty members or project contacts about research opportunities. We'll cover the steps to get involved, tips for contacting faculty, funding possibilities, and options for course credit. Once you have attended an Office of Undergraduate Research info session or spoken to an advisor, you can use the "Who to contact" details for this project to get in touch with the project leader and express your interest in getting involved.
