“Adherence to Unethical Instruction from AI Supervisors: Combining Experiments with Machine Learning”


Comments: The manuscript “Adherence to unethical instructions from AI supervisors: Combining experiments with machine learning” explores an avant-garde issue and question: Are people more likely follow unethical instruction from AI supervisor vs human supervisor? The methods are rigorous and robust. The committee also thought that dilemma and dependent measures were cleverly designed. Understanding the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in organizations is also practically very useful and timely. Very well done!
