The program consists of four modules: Systems and Design, Human-Centered
Machine Learning, AI and Social Good, and Critical Perspectives on HCAI.
Our goal is to identify future roles, undertakings, and collaborations for

varied professional perspectives. We welcome a range of backgrounds,
including HCI of course, but also informatics, computer science, science
and technology studies, communication, product design, global development,
and more. You can find more details in this
