Exploring the Real Impact of Conversational AI: A Deeper Look


Recent insights from the Journal of Applied Psychology (https://psycnet.apa.org/doi/10.1037/apl0001103) suggest a potential increase in loneliness and a need for affiliation due to AI interactions in the workplace. This thesis project offers a unique opportunity to examine these findings within the context of conversational AI. Is the impact of conversational AI as straightforward, or does a more nuanced understanding await discovery?

Objectives of the thesis

We're Looking For Students Who:

  • Are intrigued by the intersection of AI, psychology, and workplace wellbeing.
  • Can conduct independent research, including participant recruitment and data analysis.
  • Are committed to thorough research methods, adapting existing frameworks to new contexts.

We offer
