Course Human Machine Systems

This course will be offered in the summer term 2020. Due to the current Corona-Outbreak,  the class will be held online. As of now (30.03.), the TU Berlin has ordered the summer term to start one week late, so we extended our registration deadlines and adapted the scheduled start dates of the course. Please check regularly for updates as the situation develops dynamically. We are looking forward to having you participate !

Please note that you will need to have access to a laptop, tablet or smartphone with at least a microphone and a stable internet connection for our online lessons. If you do not have the technical equipment, please contact me directly.

HF2030: Future perspectives in Human Factors research.

Course language: English! -

Supervision: M.Sc. Sarah-Christin Freytag

Will intelligent systems replace humans? Will artificial intelligence rise and wipe out humanity as we know it? Will we live in VR? What will happen to social interaction? Will the human factor be emphasized or neglected? What technological breakthroughs will change our world? What medical technologies are on the horizon and will change our concept of health? This course will challenge students to discuss those and related topics controversially. We aim to identify challenges and trends and debate their importance from a scientific, social, political and ethical perspective.

Participating students will be given the task to coordinate and hold one lecture in which they will give a talk on a related topic, followed by group discussion and/or group work. They will also write an essay that explores this topic more in-depth and in relation to other topics discussed at the end of the term. (3CP/LP)

This course is open to students from or with an interest in all fields related to human-machine interaction. A multi-disciplinary approach is encouraged.

Sign-ups are open until April, 17th (extended date). Please sign up via Email: sarah.freytag ( at ) mms.tu-berlin.de

Following your registration, you will be grated access to a course page on ISIS in early April.
