Digital Personhood: Creating and Exploring Digital Empathy

Project: Funded ProjectResearch


Creating and Exploring Digital Empathy (CEDE) proposes to unlock the digital communication of empathy as we believe its is a major emission from online communication and digital personhood as a whole. Currently there are few ways to let a loved one, a group or a community, or even perfect strangers know that you feel empathetic towards their situation. Whilst we are able to express emotions via simple iconography it is limited in scope and fails to include any indication of understanding or depth of feeling. In short, there is a need in the digital personhood research space to understand what it means to be digitally human and to put in place new methods to feel / express empathy via the network.
