Dear colleagues,

we invite you to submit your Human-Centered AI contributions to this special issue (Research topic) of Frontiers journal.

The DL is April 4th, 2021 and (an optional) DL for abstracts on December 20th, 2020. Please see the details below.

Best regards,

Kaisa Väänänen, Supraja Sankaran, Chao Zhang  and Marisela Gutierrez Lopez



AI is becoming more pervasive in our everyday lives and people are increasingly having to relinquish control and decision-making to “smart” systems. Concurrently, people are confronted with a reduced sense of autonomy as a result of being monitored and guided in their actions by complex and autonomous technologies they do not fully understand or control.
In this research topic, the aim is to bring together existing knowledge and expand the scientific discussion from a multidisciplinary perspective on human-centered AI. While plenty of research is being done around this topic, it is important to explore and integrate research outcomes in the field from the lens of understanding how AI impacts human autonomy and agency. The research topic looks towards gathering evidence and consolidating grounded insights on how human-centered AI design could facilitate in respecting human autonomy and address related ethical and societal challenges posed by AI.

Contributions can address but are not limited to broader themes of:
• Explainable and transparent AI
• Human-robot collaborations
• Human-in-the-loop machine learning
• AI and human behavior
• User modeling and adaptation
• Ethics of AI
• Knowledge representation
• Social impact of automated decision-making
• Inclusive and fair AI design

We invite a variety of types of manuscripts including original research articles (incl. Empirical studies - qualitative, quantitative or mixed-methods, meta-analysis, systematic reviews, hypothesis and theory, methods), conceptual analysis, design methodologies, brief research report as well as design explorations, case studies, commentary, and opinion.


The main journal for this research topic is Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence<> in the section of Human Learning and Behavior Change<>. The topic is also cross-listed in the Human-Media Interaction<> section of Frontiers in Psychology<> and Frontiers in Computer Science<> to which authors could submit if it is better suited for their contribution.

Further information on types of articles, author guidelines, review and publication processes can be found here<>.


Abstract deadline (optional) : 20 December, 2020

Manuscript deadline: 04 April, 2020
