Soheil Human: Towards a Cognitive Information Economy: Dealing with the Personalisation-Privacy Paradox by Computational Cognitive Modelling of Human Needs and Values
January 10, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Need satisfaction plays a fundamental role in human wellbeing. This notwithstanding, the concept of need has not yet found its place in information systems and online tools. Furthermore, assessing needs itself remains a labor-intensive, mostly offline activity, where only a limited support by computational tools is available. In this talk, first, I present OpeNeeD, a family of ontologies for representing human needs data. Then, I introduce Polyphony, an ontology for representing epistemic disagreements, and discuss how Polyphony can contribute in development of pluralist ontologies for representing human needs and values. Later, by proposing the concept of cognitive information economy, I discuss how the personalisation-privacy paradox can be dealt with computational cognitive models of human needs satisfaction.
