AI agents can efficiently process large amounts of data to determine solutions to problems. However, effectively communicating information to encourage behavioural changes is a challenge in human-AI agent interaction due to too little or too much trust in AI decision-making.
My research interest lies in simulating an interaction between human users and AI agents in Virtual Reality to investigate the role of anthropomorphism (i.e., attributing human-like appearances and behaviours) in evoking trustworthiness and acceptance of AI. Additionally, EEG will be utilised to study the neural correlates of trust and generate a real-time assessment of human trust in AI.
