In an interview for the series "Digitale Köpfe in der Region" of the Badische Neueste Nachrichten (BNN), Prof. Dr. Alexander Mädche called for more human technology.

In this, he argues that apps need to be designed more human in order to cause positive emotions and experiences on the user side rather than social pressure, time pressure, and interruptions. Greater transparency of applications for data use and greater user autonomy in deciding on the use of data, for example, could contribute to this development.
