Friday 15 December, 2023at 12:15 - 13:00
The goal of this talk is to introduce Social AI, the domain aimed at making sense of human behaviour in terms of social and psychological phenomena. After illustrating the key-ideas underlying Social AI, the talk will provide an example of the way the domain works, from the collection of data, to the development of appropriate approaches, and to analysis and interpretation of results. Finally, the talk will provide an overview of current Social AI activities at the University of Glasgow, in view of possible collaborations with the University of Umea.

He published around 200 works and he directs the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Socially Intelligent Artificial Agents. Finally, Alessandro is co-founder of Klewel and scientific advisor of Substrata.
