Current research work
Sara Benouar is currently a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Computing Science at Umeå University with Dr. Helena Lindgren (umu.se) and her research group Interactive and Intelligent Systems (umu.se)
Sara Benouar is exploring Human-AI Dialogues for Causal Reasoning and Collaborative Storytelling in Health Improvement. Her research focuses on the dynamic interplay between humans and AI, harnessing the power of causal reasoning and interactive storytelling in micro-dialogues that revolve around past, present, and future "what-if" scenarios. This fascinating endeavor takes place within the context of behavior modification for enhanced health outcomes, with the incorporation of the innovative concept of a Digital Twin.
