339 – Research Assistant, Impact of AI on Users’ Psychology

Project Name
Impact of AI on Users’ Psychology

Project Description
Irresistible pressures are driving the adoption of AI. What impact will this have on us? Will using AI or operating through an autonomous robot, for example, undermine trust, increase risk-taking, reduce vigilance to threats and increase dehumanization of others? This project will examine the psychological impact of such advances.

Job Description
The Research Assistant will assist by helping to finalize development of agents that vary in level of autonomy (e.g., full AI vs assisted). The assistant will help to run an experiment where the impact of autonomy on users’ psychological factors is tested, as well as analyze the results of this study.

Preferred Skills
– Experimental design
– Running user studies
– Computer-human or computer-mediated interaction
