How Humans Judge Machines by Cesar A

How Humans Judge Machines by Cesar A. Hidalgo, Diana Orghiain, Jordi Albo Canals, Filipa De Almeida, Natalia Martin, Cesar A. Hidalgo Diana Orghiain

Overview: How people judge humans and machines in scenarios involving labor displacement, algorithmic bias, policing, privacy violations, natural disasters, and more.
How would you feel about losing your job to a machine? How about a tsunami alert system that fails? Would you react differently to acts of discrimination depending on whether they were carried out by a machine or by a human? What about public surveillance?

How Humans Judge Machines compares people’s reactions to actions performed by humans and machines. Using data collected in dozens of experiments, this book reveals the biases that permeate human-machine interactions.

Are there conditions in which we judge machines unfairly? Is our judgment of machines affected by the moral dimensions of a scenario? Is our judgment of machine correlated with demographic factors such as education or gender?
