Algorithm Exploitation: Humans are keen to exploit benevolent AI

Speaker: Ophelia Deroy, Ludwig Maximilian University Munich
Date: Tuesday, 19 October, 2021 at 3pm 

Meeting: 2741 939 7039

We cooperate with other people despite the risk of being exploited or hurt. If future artificial intelligence (AI) systems are benevolent and cooperative toward us, what will we do in return? In this talk, I will report on our findings from classic social dilemma economic games and a newly designed game of Reciprocity, showing that our cooperative dispositions are weaker when we interact with AI.


I will discuss new questions and developments which have followed our initial project - one, regarding the relevance & limits of game-theory for studying social interactions with AI, and the second, regarding the cross-cultural and psychological dimensions to take into account.
