I'm Maurice Jakesch.

I’m an assistant professor and consultant working on the societal impact of digital technologies. I run the Computational Social Science Lab at Bauhaus University Weimar.

My research investigates how AI communication systems change society. Through behavioral experiments, machine learning apps and data science, I explore how large language models, or AI-enabled news and social media technologies affect interpersonal trust, people’s beliefs, and cultural values. My insights have been presented to the US Senate, White House Advisory Council and were reported in the Wall Street Journal.
