Evolutionary Psychology and Artificial Intelligence: The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Human Behaviour

  title={Evolutionary Psychology and Artificial Intelligence: The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Human Behaviour},
  author={Holly Wilson and Paul Rauwolf and Joanna J. Bryson},
Artificial Intelligence (AI) presents a new landscape for humanity. Both what we can do, and the impact of our ordinary actions is changed by the innovation of digital and intelligent technology. In this chapter we postulate how AI impacts contemporary societies on an individual and collective level. We begin by teasing apart the current actual impact of AI on society from the impact that our cultural narratives surrounding AI has. We then consider the evolutionary mechanisms that maintain a…

Artificial intelligence and pro-social behaviour
If artificial intelligence (AI) were achievable, what would the consequences be for human society? Perhaps surprisingly, the answer to this question is already at hand. We are achieving rapid and
Almost human: Anthropomorphism increases trust resilience in cognitive agents.
Results showed that anthropomorphic agents were associated with greater trust resilience, a higher resistance to breakdowns in trust, and that these effects were magnified by greater uncertainty; and that incorporating human-like trust repair behavior largely erased differences between the agents.
Simulating the Evolution of the Human Family: Cooperative Breeding Increases in Harsh Environments
The model presented here is inevitably a simplified representation of a human population, but it provides a basis for future modeling work toward evolutionary explanations of human behavior that consider the influence of both genetic and cultural transmission of behavior.
Just an Artifact: Why Machines Are Perceived as Moral Agents
The experience of AI may improve the authors' ethical intuitions and self-understanding, potentially helping their societies make better-informed decisions on serious ethical dilemmas.
Fear of Autonomous Robots and Artificial Intelligence: Evidence from National Representative Data with Probability Sampling
Correlational results indicate that FARAI is associated with other types of fear, including loneliness, becoming unemployed, and drone use, which renders a much needed glimpse and update regarding how much individuals fear robots and artificial intelligence.
Evolutionary accounts of human behavioural diversity
It is argued that greater integration between the subfields is critical to developing a satisfactory understanding of diversity, and reaffirm that evolutionary theory provides an essential framework for understanding behavioural diversity within and between human populations.
"Scary Robots": Examining Public Responses to AI
Overall results showed that the most common visions of the impact of AI elicit significant anxiety, and Negotiating the deployment of AI will require contending with these anxieties.
Communication and collective action: language and the evolution of human cooperation
All social species face various “collective action problems” (CAPs) or “social dilemmas,” meaning problems in achieving cooperating when the best move from a selfish point of view yields an inferior
Slam the Brakes: Perceptions of Moral Decisions in Driving Dilemmas
A Virtual Reality simulation involving an autonomous vehicle and a transparent AV that reported back the characteristics of the NPCs that influenced its decision-making process is developed, including the distress expressed by participants at exposing them to a system that makes decisions based on socio-demographic attributes, and their implications.
On the reliability of unreliable information: Gossip as cultural memory
When individuals learn from what others tell them, the information is subject to transmission error that does not arise in learning from direct experience. Yet evidence shows that humans consistently
