We focus on systematically including values, such as transparency and privacy, in the design of data-driven
services. We are applying our insights into the design of an app for clinics of HU University of Applied Sciences
Utrecht. We are developing:

  • An overview of methods and techniques for designing responsible data-driven services.
  • A value-sensitive design of a data-driven service in preventive care.
