Cognitive neuroscientist, University of Helsinki
The transformation of reality
Katri Saarikivi is a cognitive neuroscientist leading the HUME project at the Cognitive Brain Research Unit of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Helsinki. The project examines neural mechanisms involved in empathy and fruitful interaction and, in particular, how these mechanisms could be better harnessed in online communication. The research is driven by the question of what would the best complementarity of artificial and human intelligence be, how computers could better understand human emotions and how people could best interact via computers.
