Mr Andrew Prahl will facilitate a discussion on:
Mortal vs Machine: Towards an Understanding of Human-Human Communication and Human-Automation Communication in Management Decision-Making
Automation is playing a larger role in organizations every day. Many roles once performed by humans are now performed, or supplemented, by advanced forms of automation that allow decision-makers receive advice on important decisions without interacting with another human. This talk covers recent research on the phenomenon, including the organizational communication and social psychological consequences of automated advice. Empirical research will be presented as well as a future research agenda designed to keep pace with the rapid advance of automation, including “social” and “moral” automation.
