The Graz University of Technology
The Graz University of Technology (TUGraz; http://tugraz.at), located in Graz, Austria, was founded in 1811 and serves more than 12,000 students. TUGraz is represented by the team of the Cognitive and Digital Science Lab (CoDiS Lab; http://isds.tugraz.at/codis), a research group that is part of the Institute of Interactive Systems and Data Science. The CoDiS Lab focuses on interdisciplinary research by connecting and applying computer science with cognitive psychology and human factors. The main research areas of CoDiS include (a) digital literacy development, (b) human and computational decision making, and (c) human-centred system design and evaluation. In the OpenWebSerach.EU project the CoDiS Lab is responsible for the creation of search applications that demonstrate the open web search infrastructure and motivate external parties to get involved. Furthermore, the team of the CoDiS Lab contributes to the integration of ethical values and human aspects in the search technology, such as trust, privacy, and explainability.
TU Graz benefits from the involvement in this project, as this endeavor aims to solve the major societal challenge of making web search independent through a technological solution. This increases public visibility and reputation of the university and the research team.
