Due to its many uses, artificial intelligence (AI) has recently skyrocketed in popularity. However, problematic uses of AI can cause bad outcomes: If we program machines to optimize for results that conform to our normative views and goals, they might do just that.
Using Interdisciplinary Cognitive Science Insights To Improve Decision Making
To further our interest in connecting cutting-edge research with real-world applications, we reached out to Michał Klincewicz, an assistant professor at Tilburg University in the Department of Cognitive Science, to learn more about his work on using video games to explore moral cognition and stimulate moral insight, as well as his use of machine learning to spot conspiratorial online videos.
Fitting The Behavioral Science Piece In The Organizational Puzzle
Behavioral science is growing quickly as a field. But there's always the question about how it can be practically applied within an organization. In this article, a behavioral scientist explores the world of tech products to understand where the subject can add value and how it can be used most effectively.
