Uses and Effects of Smart Media: How AI Impacts User Experience
Deadline: 15 November 2019
The increasing integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into digital media technologies has provided additional affordances and altered the nature of user experience, providing new audience engagement and gratification opportunities that meet human needs for information, communication and entertainment in a variety of innovative ways.
These AI-driven smart media have helped usher in a new media environment where social bots are used to spread false information, a 360-degree view provides a panoramic look of a natural disaster event – and augmented reality is used to aid strategic communication objectives – including both commercial and prosocial campaigns. Likewise, from personalized movie offerings on Amazon and Netflix to digital virtual assistants such as Siri and Alexa, a number of new AI-based tools, mobile apps and devices have changed the nature of our media consumption and habits.
To date, the social and psychological effects of these developments have yet to be fully understood. Therefore, we have dedicated a special issue of the journal to probe into cognitive, affective and behavioral aspects of user engagement with AI-enabled media technologies.
For this special issue, we invite submissions that empirically investigate the uses and effects of AI-based media from communication, psychology, marketing, computer science, information science, and other fields. Interdisciplinary research is particularly welcome.
