Artificial Intelligence Can Have an Impact on Loneliness, Insomnia
Washington, 18 Jun (ONA) --- As the utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) systems continues to surge, there has been a simultaneous increase in health issues.
With the rise in the usage of AI systems, health problems have also increased simultaneously. As per a study released by the American Psychological Association, employees who often engage with AI systems are more likely to suffer loneliness, which can contribute to sleeplessness.
Researchers conducted four experiments in the US, Taiwan, Indonesia and Malaysia. Findings were consistent across cultures. The research was published online in the Journal of Applied Psychology.
The researchers found that employees who frequently used AI systems were more likely to offer help to fellow employees, but that response may have been triggered by their loneliness and need for social contact.
Furthermore, the studies found that participants with higher levels of attachment anxiety - the tendency to feel insecure and worried about social connections - responded more strongly to working on AI systems with both positive reactions, such as helping others, and negative ones, such as loneliness and insomnia.
