Adam Waytz

Associate Professor of Management and Organizations, Northwestern University

Waytz will research the extent to which automation—or the replacement of human tasks with machines—affects people’s perceptions of themselves, others, and work. He will conduct a series of experiments to determine how people evaluate information differently based on whether a machine or human produces that information, whether automated whistleblowing systems can encourage ethical behavior, and whether concerns about automation replacing jobs contribute to anti-immigrant prejudice.
