"Psychological and Psychosocial Consequences of Super Disruptive A.I.: Public Health Implications and Recommendations"
- A moral panic is burgeoning now that the disruptive impacts of A.I. are becoming unmistakable, and further advancements shall have increasingly profound ramifications on how we interact with one another, how we experience our lives, and how we perceive the future and the world around us. With these profound, existential changes, there will also be implications for the psychological and psychosocial well-being of people around the world. The psychological and psychosocial impacts of A.I. from a public health perspective deserve attention. The purpose of this paper is, therefore, to begin to elucidate these issues and provide recommendations. Topics discussed include the mechanisms of psychological and social impacts, including threats to interpersonal and societal trust, problems of deception, overreliance on machines in decision-making, and the public health risks caused by the displacement and disenfranchisement of persons in work sectors most impacted by A.I. Recommendations are presented for addressing these emerging issues to be considered by technology developers, policy-makers, ethicists, healthcare clinicians, politicians, and the general public.
