Project Details

AI approaches can be described as extensive prediction machines at their core. In this project we focus on how the awareness of one’s own behavior being predicted affects choices by individuals and whether predictions originating from AI induce different effects to those made by humans. We use a controlled online experiment to research how individuals react to their behavior being predicted in standard economic decisions and games. Based on datasets from meta-studies we train an AI and gather predictions made by humans. The AI takes demographics as an input and states the predicted choice. The aim is to find out how individuals react to their behavior being predicted and to investigate whether the origin of predictions matters.
