Is the emergence of a subfield of psychology, "psychology of artificial intelligence", possible and necessary? If so, what questions it will address and will try to solve?

Possibly, it could also emerge as a new branch of engineering psychology, due to the fact that engineering psychology handles the realms of interactions between humans and machines, as well as human factors in general.

  • $\begingroup$ This question is unclear. "psychology of artificial intelligence" would be necessary to what? Anyway, this question is probably too old to now change it and expect good answers. If you are still interested in a similar question, I would recommend that you think well about your new question, make it clear, then ask it on a separate post. $\endgroup$

And by trying to answer my own question, and how I see it, yes - there is some requirement like it stated in this particular article: https://medium.com/womeninai/psychology-of-artificial-intelligence-ca0f0a9f3d7c

Because yes - there are multiple occurrences of an AI being biased, hateful, racist, sexist, etc.

Also, humans themselves tend to act towards an AI in the insolent ways, so the human factor also needed to be accounted for.

So yeah - I think it will be a branch, or an extension of an engineering psychology, which exactly addresses primarily a human factor and relationships between the human and a machine.

But other than that it will address the factors of how should it be built, how we can expect it to behave, and how should it behave, because it should follow the strict moral code, to be not the threat to us.
