Project Portfolio

Human Perception of the Sentience of ChatGPT and Artificial Intelligence

Started June 4, 2023

Abstract or project description

This project aims to measure the psychological phenomenon of how prone people are to thinking that ChatGPT and AI have sentience: a mind of their own. Additionally, it would test if their perception of sentience influences their beliefs on the future of AI, how risky it is, and how adept of a tool it can be. This project is exploratory and entails survey questions that quantify the relationship that people have with AI agents (specifically ChatGPT) and AI in general. Conclusions will be drawn when the results of the survey are analyzed statistically through OLS regression and ANOVA. Visual representations of the data as well in the form of linear regression models will also be provided.
