Digital Lunch Talks series on „Dark Patterns“ – Influencing and Manipulation on the internet
The “Dark Pattern Detection Project” (Dapde) hosts a three-part online event on the role of behavior-influencing designs on the internet. Users encounter so called “dark patterns” almost every day – e.g. as asynchronous cookie consent fields, (false) customer reviews or user-unfriendly pre-selections.
For each of the dates, the interdisciplinary events look at the phenomenon from a different perspective. Although participation is not mandatory for all events, together they paint a bigger picture.
The appointments take place on Wednesdays at 3 p.m.:
