ELLIS Alicante in Spain and the Dynamic Decision Making Laboratory (DDMLab) in the USA, have joined forces to create research collaborations on Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (AI).
In the 2023 ELLIS-DDMLab 3-day workshop, researchers from both laboratories will come together to encourage and develop novel collaborations in the study of human-AI complementarity and the role of AI in human societies. This workshop will be held March 7-9, 2023 in Alicante, Spain.
The goal of this workshop is to generate new research ideas that will advance the foundational research of human-AI collaborations and interdependencies. At the end of this workshop, researchers from ELLIS and DDMLab would have determined concrete themes of collaboration between the two laboratories, which will be pursued in future search.
The event will take place March 7-9, 2023 in Alicante, Spain. Activities will take place from 9:30 to 17:00, Tuesday through Thursday.

|Event with Nuria: "People from Alicante who are changing the world."
Alicante is a city and municipality in the Valencian Community, Spain. It is the capital of the province of Alicante and a historic Mediterranean port. The city might be best known for its sprawling public beaches, lively nightlife, and great restaurant scene, but Alicante is brimming with heritage and is a fantastic vacation spot for history buffs. Alicante's history spans thousands of years and it is one of the longest inhabited cities in Spain.
Workshop activities will be held in the new Digital Distrct Building 5, Muelle Pte., 03003 Alicante, Spain. This is the fifth headquarters of the Digital District in the city of Alicante, with the capacity to accommodate 550 employees of companies in the technology sector.

Workshop activities on Tuesday and Wednesday will be broadcast through Zoom. You may log in at any time to view the proceedings. However, please note that guest's audio and chat will be disabled during the event! Thanks!
The ELLIS Alicante Foundation is the first Spanish unit within the ELLIS European network for research excellence. It is the only ELLIS unit that has been created as an independent non-profit research foundation, with the spirit of a scientific startup. Our name, The Institute of Human-Centered AI, defines our mission: We firmly believe in the power of AI as an engine for progress and a key contributor to well-being. However, such a potential is by no means guaranteed and that’s why the research of our foundation is so important. Our vision, mission and research have been awarded the 2022 Spanish Social Innovation Award by the Spanish Association of Foundations. We aim to be a leading research lab on ethical, responsible and human-centered AI. We are the only ELLIS unit devoted exclusively to this topic. At ELLIS Alicante, we address three important research areas:
The Dynamic Decision Making Laboratory was founded in 2002 by Prof. Cleotilde Gonzalez. Initially supported by a grant from the Army Research Laboratories, the DDMLab is now a group fully funded by grants from research institutions. The focus of the DDMLab research is to develop theoretical understanding of the process by which humans make decisions in dynamic environments and to provide practical demonstrations of how this theoretical knowledge can be used to improve human dynamic decision making and general performance in a number of practical domains. At the DDMLab, we use cognitive computational models and laboratory experiments to help explain and predict how people make such decisions. We also develop recommendations for how people can make such decisions better. Our driving theory is the Instance-Based Learning Theory (IBLT), which in essence proposes that people make choices by retrieving the best outcomes from their past experience. The process involves:
