Ziv Epstein

Postdoctoral Fellow

Ziv Epstein is a poostdoctoral fellow at the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered AI. In his research, he seeks to bring a (more-than-)human-centered approach to the design of sociotechnical systems. In particular, he focuses on translating insights from design and the social sciences into the development of generative AI and social media platforms. In his dissertation, he explored ways to conceptualize and navigate attention online in order to develop interventions to mitigate the spread of misinformation and to promote collective intelligence: how do we move away from an attention economy, and towards an attention ecology?

Ziv has published papers in venues such as the general interest journals Nature, Science and PNAS, as well as top-tier computer science proceedings such as CHI and CSCW. His work has also received widespread media attention in outlets like the New York Times, Scientific American, and NPR.
