Detection and Design for Cognitive Biases
in People and Computing Systems
CHI 2020 Workshop
The following themes will set the tone for the workshop discussions and attendees' submissions:
The goal of the workshop is to foster a research community around the investigation of cognitive biases and how they influence our interactions with computing systems and our susceptibility to messaging in digital media. As a field in the intersection of Computer Science and Psychology, HCI is well suited for contributing in a variety of ways. We are aiming at building a community with a research agenda around detecting, mitigating, and designing for cognitive biases.
With HCI being at the forefront of designing and developing user-facing computing systems, as designers and technologists, we also bear responsibility for increasing awareness of potential issues and working on solutions to mitigate these problems. To foster and educate fellow researchers, and thereby, raise awareness and self-awareness is consequently an essential goal of this workshop. The workshop themes and accepted submissions will be used as starting points for discussions.
The organizers will document the results of the discussions and will make the collected information available to workshop participants and the broader community by means of online repositories and a public website. Outcomes include a detailed research agenda forward and a cross-discipline community of international esteem.
