Designing for Credibility & Trust: Guest Visit by Elisabeth Lex

2019-04-05T15:59:26+02:00March 4th, 2019|Categories: Announcements for members, DDfV News, Event announcement|Tags: , , , , |

From 13 to 17 May 2019, Dr. Elisabeth Lex will visit TU Delft at the invitation of the DDfV Institute. Her work on credibility assessment and trust in recommender systems allows us to translate our values concerning misinformation and filter bubbles into technological norms and concrete design requirements. This work is strongly grounded in evaluation using behavioral user data, which allows us to assess value realization in design/engineering outcomes.

Call for Papers: The Societal and Ethical Dimensions of Computer Simulations

2019-01-30T16:35:30+02:00January 30th, 2019|Categories: DDfV News|Tags: , |

It is our pleasure to announce a CfP for a special issue in the journal SIMULATION. This journal is dedicated to the practice of computer simulations from several disciplines, and therefore it reaches out to a number of computer scientists, researchers, and engineers. The special issue is on the ethics and societal dimension of computer simulations, and it will be edited by DDfV scientific director Jeroen van den Hoven and DDfV researcher Juan Duran. If you are doing research on this topic, you are cordially invited to submit a paper.

Technologies enabling the quantified self, mobile apps to share your location, social media, high-tech clothing and behavior-supporting technology such as smart homes: technologies are getting "closer" in our daily lives. A lecture by DDFV researcher Birna van Riemsdijk on the challenge of designing good 'intimate technologies' (IN DUTCH).

Successful Closing Event for Pilot Program on Responsible Innovation and the SDGs – Watch the Video

2018-06-14T18:01:13+02:00June 13th, 2018|Categories: DDfV News|

In the academic year 2017-2018 Delft University of Technology explored the viability and relevance of a new research program on meeting the sustainable development goals through responsible innovation and design for values. The program consisted of fourteen short-term pilot projects and was made possibly by support from The Hague municipality. The pilot program closed with a stimulating symposium on 8 June 2018 in the Peace Palace in The Hague.
