Judith Faßbender

Judith Faßbender joined the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society as a doctoral researcher in November 2020. Within the framework of the research project Public Interest AI, funded by the Ministry of Education and Research, she is looking at Public Interest Artificial Intelligence (AI) from a process oriented perspective. She is doing her PhD at the University of St Andrews in the School of Computer Science on Design Patterns for participatory Data Governance.

After her bachelor’s degree in design at Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle and Design Academy Eindhoven, she received her master’s degree at Zeppelin University Friedrichshafen where she majored in cultural and communication sciences with a minor in economics.

Judith is currently a visiting lecturer at KISD for AI and Design. Previously she worked in the cultural sector and at research institutions, as an intern at Die Neue Sammlung at Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich and as a design and research assistant at Studio Knol in Amsterdam. She wrote her master thesis in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Center for Responsible Research and Innovation in Berlin where she critically examined the integration of civil society actors in deliberative forums on AI Ethics.
