Hybrid Societies: Humans Interacting with Embodied Technologies
Hybrid Societies

Research in the CRC 1410 Hybrid Societies pertains to the interaction with Embodied Digital Technologies (EDTs) as artificial bodies moving in real or virtual environments, but also to wearable EDTs extending and enhancing the human body as well as to those that provide evolutionary novel experiences to the human mind.

The CRC 1410 will officially start in January 2020.

We are accepting applications as of right now. Details.

  • What is required so that humans can coordinate with EDTs as smoothly as with conspecifics?
  • How to design EDTs to meet these requirements?

The CRC Hybrid Societies targets the challenges involved in the necessary coordination of humans and artificial bodies in shared environments (e.g., handovers, social resonance, and moving dexterously through crowded places). Its main goal is to ensure smooth and efficient encounters between humans and embodied technologies in hybrid societies. Future EDTs shall not distract, obstruct, and interfere, they shall empower, augment, and expand human goal pursuit in shared environments.
