Do people perceive artificial intelligence (AI) agents to be moral wrongdoers? Dr. Daniel Shank will present a lecture titled “The Perceived Morality of Artificially Intelligent Agents” at the psychology colloquium 1-2 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15, in Room 318 of Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall.
Shank is an assistant professor of psychological science. He will discuss the results of four studies that begin to address the following questions:
- Are AIs attributed morality differently from humans?
- Does this change for human-AI teams?
- When do people perceive AIs as having a mind?
- When do people perceive AIs as committing a moral wrong?
