Biography

Susanne Hindennach is a PhD student in the Perceptual User Interfaces group since June 2020. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Cognitive Science from the University of Osnabrück and a Master’s degree in Clinical and Experimental Neuroscience from the University of Cologne. In her PhD, she analyses mind attribution in explanations about AI systems on the one hand, and, on the other hand, she investigates new XAI methods that provide explanations about the humans involved in building the AI system. As such, the goal of her PhD is to redirect Theory of Mind away from the AI systems and towards the human minds behind AI.
