Redefining Knowledge: The Psychological Impact of AI on Academic Honesty

James Duah (PhD student )
In an era where AI has stormed into our lives with the unpredictability of a whirlwind, this talk specifically delves into the profound psychological impacts of AI enabled cheating in university settings.
As we grapple with crumbling notions of academic integrity and the essence of authorship, we must ask: has AI fundamentally redefined our understanding of knowledge itself? This talk explores the delicate balance between human essence and the relentless march of AI, probing the moral quandaries that arise when the line between human and machine becomes increasingly blurred.

AI take the wheel: Human-Vehicle Interaction in the Intelligent Age

Weina Qu (Associate Professor in Psychology, Chinese Academy of Sciences )
Self-driving cars are changing the way we get around and make for an exciting, ‘futuristic’ experience. Are we removing human decision making on the road and how does this affect our safety? What happens when drivers become distracted interacting with in-vehicle screens, and how safe is it to take over a vehicle that is self-driven? You’ll hear Prof. Qu’s take on the use of AI in this setting.
