Human Decision-Making in a World of Smart Machines
Whether visible or invisible in the background, smart machines are taking on more and more tasks and thus also gaining influence. In particular, artificial agents can support humans in decision-making situations. For example, robo-advisors help consumers make financial decisions, and interactive dashboards help managers make market decisions. But how does interaction with smart machines affect the quality of decisions, and how do roles and responsibilities change in the decision-making process? These are just two of a series of questions we are exploring right now.
