Maike Arnold

Research Scientist

Maike Arnold works as a research associate in the Philosophy of Computational Sciences department, where she is responsible for the sub-project "Trust in Computer-Aided Testimony in Criminological Contexts". She researches a notion of trust in witness testimony that does justice to both everyday and criminological settings in its epistemic as well as ethical implications and takes increasing algorithmization into account. Her dissertation focuses on the specific relationship between trust and knowledge in the context of human and machine testimonies.

Arnold wrote her exam thesis in literary studies and philosophy at the TU Darmstadt on the possibility of using computational methods for a conceptual history of testimony.
