The corruptive force of AI-generated advice

  title={The corruptive force of AI-generated advice},
  author={Margarita Leib and Nils C. K{\"o}bis and Rainer Michael Rilke and Marloes H. J. Hagens and Bernd Irlenbusch},
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly becoming a trusted advisor in people's lives. A new concern arises if AI persuades people to break ethical rules for profit. Employing a large-scale behavioural experiment (N = 1,572), we test whether AI-generated advice can corrupt people. We further test whether transparency about AI presence, a commonly proposed policy, mitigates potential harm of AI-generated advice. Using the Natural Language Processing algorithm, GPT-2, we generated honesty… 

Figures from this paper

Bad machines corrupt good morals.

This work proposes four main social roles through which both humans and machines can influence ethical behaviour: role model, advisor, partner and delegate, and outlines a research agenda to gain behavioural insights for better AI oversight.

Harnessing Artificial Intelligence for Health Message Generation: The Folic Acid Message Engine

The Folic Acid Message Engine can easily create several hundreds of new messages that appear natural to humans and can serve as a starting point for more sophisticated AI-guided message creation systems for health communication.

CyBERT: Cybersecurity Claim Classification by Fine-Tuning the BERT Language Model

This work introduces CyBERT, a cybersecurity feature claims classifier based on bidirectional encoder representations from transformers and a key component in the authors' semi-automated cybersecurity vetting for industrial control systems (ICS), and proposes an approach to obtain optimal hyperparameters, including the learning rate, the number of dense layers, and their configuration, to increase the accuracy of the classifier.



Human Decision Making with Machine Advice : An Experiment on Bailing and Jailing

Much of political debate focuses on the concern that machines might take over. Yet in many domains it is much more plausible that the ultimate choice and responsibility remain with a human

All the News that’s Fit to Fabricate: AI-Generated Text as a Tool of Media Misinformation

Abstract Online misinformation has become a constant; only the way actors create and distribute that information is changing. Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) such as GPT-2 mean that actors

Artificial intelligence faces reproducibility crisis.

The booming field of artificial intelligence is grappling with a replication crisis, much like the ones that have afflicted psychology, medicine, and other fields over the past decade, leading to a new conscientiousness about research methods and publication protocols.

Machine behaviour

It is argued that this necessitates a broad scientific research agenda to study machine behaviour that incorporates and expands upon the discipline of computer science and includes insights from across the sciences.

Intrinsic Honesty and the Prevalence of Rule Violations across Societies

An index of the ‘prevalence of rule violations’ (PRV) based on country-level data from the year 2003 of corruption, tax evasion and fraudulent politics is developed and individual intrinsic honesty is found to be stronger in the subject pools of low PRV countries than those of highPRV countries.

Protecting consumers from collusive prices due to AI

A direction for policy change is proposed and it is called for computer scientists, economists, and legal scholars to act in concert to operationalize the proposed change.

Preventing undesirable behavior of intelligent machines

A general framework for algorithm design is introduced in which the burden of avoiding undesirable behavior is shifted from the user to the designer of the algorithm, and this framework simplifies the problem of specifying and regulating undesirable behavior.

The collaborative roots of corruption

Introducing a novel sequential dyadic die-rolling paradigm, this work shows that collaborative settings provide fertile ground for the emergence of corruption, and highlights the role of collaboration—particularly on equal terms—in shaping corruption.
