Cluster D

Human-centered design of digital technologies and media

To support mental health, cluster D focuses on humane design of technologies and media. Primarily, the question of how digital applications can be designed to cause less stress while still fulfilling their intended purpose will be investigated. Also, there will be an emphasis on methods of deep learning to create an app supporting the mental health of individuals.
