AI systems need to be designed in the interest of people and the environment. This postdoc position focuses on developing principles and demonstrators that focus on the idea of "multi-intentionality” in the context of the User Interface (UI) Design of Responsible AI Systems – that is, considering the concurrent and potentially conflicting intents and needs of different users and stakeholders. The research will aim to conceptualize and demonstrate how user interface design can contribute to:
- Visualize the "multi-intentionality" of a decentralized AI system;
- Situate, tune and negotiate the system responses;
- Make a system’s responses contestable and refutable.
A first choice of context is health. For example, a context where the AI system is facilitating practices of self-care to help users make the most of their health and wealth for insurance purposes. The system tracks the user’s activity to reward benefits without claiming and provides fitness and nutrition tips to develop healthy long-term habits. Profiling and price optimisation may not always cater user’s, company’s and society’s different intents and needs appropriately. How can automated decisions based on profiling and price optimisation be explained, contested and possibly repaired?
The ideal candidate has a background in design informatics and human-data interaction, with emphasis on visual communication and data visualization and experience with working in multidisciplinary teams. Design expertise and experience in the healthcare domain is desirable.
