Taking the best of both worlds: the concept of human-machine collaboration for designing a sustainable partnership
Claudia Müller-Birn is the head of the research group Human-Centered Computing (HCC.lab) at the Institute of Computer Science at the Freie Universität Berlin. Before her appointment at FU Berlin, she undertook a post-doc at the Carnegie Mellon University, based on a Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation. Her interdisciplinary research advances the fields of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and Social Computing. She is especially interested in investigating human-machine collaboration in which the collective intelligence of humans intertwines with machine intelligence. Her research entails both an empirical and an engineering dimension. The objective is, on the one hand, to advance our understanding of the functioning of complex socio-technical peer production systems that involve human-machine collaboration and on the other hand, to contribute to a value-based socio-technical systems design that fulfills the specific needs of an application area, such as in ideation, and visualization. Besides, Claudia advocates the use and development of open source software, the principles of open science in her research work, and the open access to scholarly knowledge.
