Digitalisation and new advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) have changed how we work, live and play, and the transformation continues. We study how to develop ICT, and monitor what happens when humans and ICT interact.

Can big data be used to make better decisions in case of pandemics? Are we able to protect ourselves against cyber warfare? How can machine learning increase our chances of surviving a heart attack? Can organisations improve their business by means of AI? And is it OK to use AI in schools to boost learning? These are all questions that our researchers are working on.

Computer and Systems Sciences is a cross-disciplinary research area, with a firm base in social sciences. Our work evolves around new technology, but technology per se is not the focal point. Instead, we explore how ICT can be used in an efficient and ethical manner to enable societal advancements.
