The Schecter Lab is conducting research on how individuals work in teams to complete problem-solving tasks. Specifically, we are investigating how different technologies such as artificial intelligence or virtual communication can affect teamwork. Your responses may help us understand how teams can function effectively while using these advanced technologies.
If you agree to take part in this study, you will be asked to solve an analytical task, along with two other teammates.
We are looking for individuals age 18 and older who have some familiarity working with technology and are not current military personnel.
Is it a myth? Is it a fact? You will be presented with 42 statements and will be asked to rate how much you believe them to be true. After finding out whether they are true or false, you will be asked to re-rate your belief in each statement.
This is a replication of the original Mason and Watts study. Participants must search a two-dimensional map for oil. They are put in a social network where they can see what their neighbors have drilled and how much oil they found. In this template, you can control what information neighbors see, how often they see it, the networks subjects are in, and how easy it is to spot valuable wells.
A traveling salesperson has to cover all the cities in his/her inventory, given a list of cities and the distances between each pair of cities, what is the shortest possible route that visits each city and returns to the origin city?
Recent advances in military technology like satellites, drones, and artificial intelligence have raised questions about when and how they should be used. How both domestic and international audiences view of these new weapons plays a critical role, both in the way policy-makers view their use and how international law around their use is formulated. This study asks participants to walk through three scenarios involving the use of these tools by the U.S. military. We are interested both in how people in both the U.S. and other countries view their use under different conditions.
