The Human Show

Innovation through Social Science
Have you ever wondered whether technology and/or the people that engage and/or work with it are “evil”? Or pondered how social scientists study human behaviour and how they can – through their applied work – enhance design and/or innovation?

In the following podcasts we ask social scientists and practitioners from all over the world to consider the same question:

“What is the nature of people’s relationship to communicative and interactive technology? What is the role ethics, power, agency and trust play in the making and performance of that relationship?”

Through industry perspective pieces, we also explore the businesses that influence that relationship through product design and/or innovation and consider the role social science plays in supporting their work.

Join us on this journey!
