HAwAI Human Aware Artificial Intelligence

As human intelligence is fundamentally rooted in human social interaction, we argue that Artificial Intelligence (AI) cannot be studied solely from the point of view of an isolated AI entity but necessitates being “human aware”, explainable and empowering interactions with humans. We see AI as being a complement to human intelligence and not a replacement. Specifically, we develop and advance AI techniques that take into account human and social aspects. This involves giving humans a true social identity in AI systems. 

To devise Human aware AI systems, members of the HAwAI team often work closely with other disciplines (cognitive science, sociology, philosophy, psychology, etc.) in order to share and advance the theories and methodologies and to construct human aware systems that are of societal value.
