Machine Psychology 3:00pm 5:00pm 3203 Over long periods of history, humans have delegated the grunt work to others- such as work animals, less fortunate humans and finally machines. Throughout that history, all the thinking or brainwork was the preserve of humans. However, with the rapid advancements in AI (Artificial Intelligence) and LLM (Large Language Models), humans can now delegate the thinking too. Traditional Psychology studies the human mind and its functions. In 2024, a new discipline of Psychology is emerging – called Machine Psychology which deals with thinking process of AI and its functions.

While this field is still very new, there is a great opportunity for students of Psychology to get in on the ground floor and start learning this science and play a role in creation of AI to expose how AI thinks and helping AI to think in a constructive way. Just as humans can have psychological conditions that can enhance or inhibit their behavior is society, we have seen that so can AI. And someone needs to start making sense of all that. This talk will give a brief overview of this exciting emerging field and stimulate your thinking on how you can leverage your Psychology education in new ways.

Presenters: Gopal Krishnan DBA and Shalini Gopalkrishnan DBA
