Researching for Humanity
Technologies trigger impacts on the environment in which they are inserted and on the people that live in it. Interactive systems are a reality in people's lives, being used through different devices for different purposes, in different contexts, with unpredictable and far-reaching consequences. In this complex scenario, it is necessary to rethink our practices, tools and theories in order to consider human values and cultural issues in an explicit way. There is also a necessary shift in our position while researchers, scientists and practitioners, approaching fundamental problems that can contribute to the society. In this position paper, we claim for such a position change and argue for a socially responsible design of technologies, keeping universal human values in mind and paying attention to cultural issues.
