DSI Digital Ethics Lab Meetings
Do people think a robot can lie? Under what conditions are we willing to trust technology? These are just a few questions that can be addressed to empirically explore topics at the intersection of digitalization and ethics. In the DSI Digital Ethics Lab Meetings, everyone with interests in similar topics is welcome to learn how to design a survey and conduct its statistical analysis.
In the DSI Digital Ethics Lab Meetings, we will empirically explore questions at the intersection of digitalization and morality. To give few further examples, questions of interest could be: are people willing to attribute mental states such as knowledge to robots? Are they willing to blame artificial agents who autonomously harm people? Can a painting made by a robot be considered art?
The first few sessions will teach the Lab members to (i) draw up an experimental design, (ii) implement it on a survey platform (Qualtrics), (iii) recruit participants online (e.g. on Amazon Mechanical Turk and Prolific) and (iv) conduct basic statistical analysis. The DSI provides funding for the recruitment of participants. For the rest of the year, lab members will present their experimental projects and pilot data to the group in order to get feedback and help.
Everybody is welcome. A background in quantitative methods is helpful, but not required.
