AI Synergies


Yana van de Sande

Researcher & student

Can you fool the AI? Combining social science and technology to create a broader sense of the AI impact on our society 

What can we learn from one another? How can a social scientist enhance the work of a computer scientist and vice versa?  Using our study as a handle, I will talk about the way a multidisciplinary approach can increase our knowledge, broaden our horizon and deepen our understanding on both technology and human behavior. 


In 2015 I started studying AI but missed the human touch. I decided a year later to start studying communication science on the side. To date, I combine my knowledge of the two fields in my research to not only improve our technology but also learn more about who we are and why we do things.
