A look behind the scenes: in the second issue of our bidt magazine, we introduce you to our research and the people at the Institute and provide insights into the interdisciplinary collaboration within the different projects.
Among other inspiring topics, Prof. Alexander Pretschner (Chairman of the board of directors) and Dr. Margret Hornsteiner (Head of Communications and Dialogue) discuss the importance of dialogue in research on digital transformation. Why do we need data literacy to find our way in a data-driven world? What role does communication play in the development of a care robot? And why should diversity and inclusion play a more prominent role in the design processes of AI technologies?
