Human-centered researchPublished on 28.03.2024

Humanness for algorithms

The latest issue of Horizonte sheds light on Edy Portmann's human-centered research. This research explores ways to integrate subjectivity and ambiguity, characteristic of human beings, into the digital realm. Along his way, Portmann has become an “evangelist of fuzzy logic”, an approach to computing that bridges the gap between the numerical precision of machines and the qualitative way we express our feelings and thoughts. 

Horizons shines a light on scientific research in Switzerland. The magazine reports on the latest developments in science and discusses research policy issues of global importance. Horizons is published by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences.
