22nd Annual Goldstone Forum

Me, Myself, and AI: The Psychology of Human Replacement

A talk from Professor Stefano Puntoni, Co-Director of AI at Wharton and Sebastian S. Kresge Professor of Marketing

Rapid advances in artificial intelligence and robotics are transforming the economy, enabling the development of many new products and services and triggering a new wave of automation in organizational and production processes. Professor Puntoni will review a research program investigating our relationship with technology in the dawning age of smart machines. Making examples from recently published articles and working papers, he will explore how consumers react to, and think about, autonomous machines and their replacement of human labor.

The talk and Q&A will be held in the Widener Lecture Room. Reception in the Sphinx Gallery to follow the talk. No registration required.

We will be raffling off 3 advanced copies of Professor Puntoni's new book, Decision Driven Analytics, during the reception.
