Facing the Future: Moral psychology and technological resistance
with Dr. David Pizarro, PhD

Increasingly, technological innovations are driving consumer products and services. Many of these technologies, such as the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and algorithmic decision-making, have been met with resistance due to ethical concerns. In some cases, these concerns pose and irrational barrier to the adoption of potentially beneficial technologies. David will discuss how the psychological mechanisms behind moral/ ethical judgment might give rise to these concerns, and how we can use the science of psychology to make consumers more comfortable with these technological advances.
