This position paper views HDI from a human-centred perspective informed by the work of Martin Buber and Eric Fromm. Buber’s ideas of philosophical dialogue (Zank, 2020) concern how humans experience the world and themselves while Fromm’s principles of character orientation (Cherry, 2020) , concern how individuals relate to the world. We seek to discuss the associated relational dynamic at play between humans and data, setting out five questions as a provocation.
