Since 2015, Tanja Schneeberger has been a researcher in the Affective Computing Group at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence.

Based on her psychology degree, she is applying psychological models and theories to transfer aspects of a successful human-human interaction to the computer and to evaluate this in empirical investigations. Her research deals with the question to what extent people build relationships with virtual agents and how this can be used for social training systems as well as applications.
