The Civic A.I. Lab is a research laboratory at the Khoury College of Computer Science at Northeastern University that: (1) studies real world problems involving people, governments, and NGOs; (2) uses human centered design to create novel computational systems that address these problems to construct improved societies. Our civic a.i. research involves the areas of crowd labor, and disinformation.
The lab’s work has been covered on major news outlets, such as: the BBC, Deutsche Welle, Vice News and the New York Times. The lab also frequently publishes at top conferences and journals, such as ACM CHI, ACM CSCW, the Web Conference, AAAI ICWSM, where our research has also won honorable mentions.
The lab is located in the Khoury College of Computer Science at Northeastern University (Boston campus.), but has multi-disciplinary and international collaborations with professors and students across different Schools, Departments, and Universities. Some of the other schools we collaborate with include: the School of Political and Social Sciences, and the School of Philosophy and Letters.
