About the Institute

 

The Psychology of Technology Institute is a non-profit organization whose mission is to elevate the quality, relevance, and impact of scientific research in order to better inform the design, use, and governance of the technologies that are shaping the future of humanity. The Institute connects scholars across disciplinary boundaries to foster and spread cutting-edge research on the factors that shape people's attitudes about new technologies (e.g., social media, smartphones, algorithms, self-driving cars, robots, artificial intelligence) as well as how the adoption and use of these technologies transform how people live, work, play, and interact.
