At the Center for Hybrid Intelligence, we use games to explore and compare the strengths and weaknesses of human and artificial intelligence and develop optimal interactions between the two.​

“The process of developing engaging interfaces that allow experts and citizen scientists alike to view complex research problems from different angles may contain the key to developing future hybrid intelligence systems in which we make optimal use of human creativity,”​ says Jacob Sherson (Head of Center)​

The Center for Hybrid Intelligence is an interdisciplinary research team exploring digital interfaces that facilitate collaboration between humans and algorithms.​

”We believe that every complex task can be improved by Hybrid Intelligence. We want to transform how people think about HI and how they interact with it,” ​says Janet Rafner (Director of Learning).​

Our goal is to strengthen human partnership with technology and prepare and inspire people for emergent futures. Keeping Sustainable Development Goals in mind, we frame our work in the context of improving the world we live in.​

Background​

The Center for Hybrid Intelligence stands on the shoulders of our citizen science platform ScienceAtHome. At ScienceAtHome time and efforts are dedicated to gamifying complex natural science problems and developing interfaces that allow humans to find optimal solutions that can train and inspire artificial algorithms. Beyond that, we are learning about the cognition and psychology of our players in order to better understand the workings of the human mind.​

Our players are motivated to contribute to our research beyond just the fun of playing games. Citizen Science enables our users to be part of a welcoming research community, learn about topics that excite them and volunteer for the sake and progress of science through participating in multiple aspects of the research cycle.​

Perspective & Impact​

For a safe future, we have to put people first in the development of new technologies and emergent futures. For a smooth transition into the age of ubiquitous computing, it is important to prepare people for the skills and jobs of tomorrow.​

Fostering unique human skills and augmenting AI into our environment is crucial to building a symbiosis between Humanity and Technology. We need transparency and the democratizing of data to inhibit monopolies.​
