Louis Longin

Postdoctoral researcher working on digital transformation

I am a postdoctoral researcher working on digital transformation at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) in Munich, Germany. My current research focuses on raising individual awareness of the risks and benefits of different data-sharing contexts. This includes theoretical work on data privacy and empirical work on the impact of social information on individual decision-making.

Previously, I completed my PhD in philosophy on the social role of AI advisors, where I asked whether advisory artificial intelligence (AI) systems are classified as mere tools or human-like agents. I provided conceptual and empirical reasons that they are something in between.

Throughout my PhD I was a fully funded fellow of the Bavarian Research Institute for Digital Transformation (bidt). I am remain part of the CVBE Cognition, Values and Behaviour group.

Previous work has focused on human-AI responsibility sharing, the social influence on perception, and intelligent sensory augmentation. 

Besides philosophy, I am the co-founder of a public-facing 'AI-workshop' series that brings technical, ethical, and practical knowledge around AI systems to the general public. Before, I was the Academic Director of ThinkTech, a non-profit organization discussing the societal impact of technology. 

You can find me on Twitter, LinkedIn and ORCID.
