Hi, I am Martin - a PhD student at TU Berlin in the field of Human Computer Interaction. As a member of the Weizenbaum Institute’s interdisciplinary research group “Criticality of AI”, I focus on Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI). In my PhD research projects, I am identifying quality criteria for interpretable systems. In empirical studies, I assess the practical value such systems provide for end-users and stakeholders. I plan to situate results in a framework that is intended to inform policymakers which data-driven systems can be made more transparent. With that, I also want to show which systems remain uninterpretable and should therefore not be used for sensitive decisions and public policy problems.
My previous research was focused around spatial input for peephole displays. During my master’s in computer science I was working for the Mobile and Physical Interaction Group led by Prof. Jörg Müller, who also supervised my master thesis. I was also part of the Design Thinking Research Program upon finishing the Basic Track of HPI D-School. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Business Informatics of Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg where I wrote my bachelor thesis under the supervision of Martin Spindler and Prof. Raimund Dachselt.
