Using artificial intelligence in a self-determined way.

In today’s digital world, artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer just a term from sci-fi novels, but a reality and omnipresent in our everyday lives. But how can this technology be used purposefully without getting lost in it? How can you seize the opportunities, minimize the risks and always remain in control? We are particularly interested in the psychological effects of AI and how people can develop the skills to use AI in a self-determined way that contributes to their personal development.

Our goal is to explore how AI companions can increase our creativity and self-efficacy. We want to find out how they can effectively support us in achieving our goals. Interested? Then give us a quick ping, and we’ll keep you updated.
