Training Artificial Intelligence and Its Impact on Social Preferences: Results from an Online Experiment

As artificial intelligence (AI) becomes increasingly integrated into our daily lives, there are concerns about the impact of AI on human decision-making and social preferences. A recent online experiment by Victor Klockmann (Univ. Würzburg), Alicia von Schenk (Univ. Würzburg) and Marie Claire Villeval (Univ. Lyon) explored whether individuals adjust their behavior when they know that their choices will train an algorithm to make decisions based on their revealed social preferences.
