Bounded Rationality of Moral Cognition (Stella Hao)
Monday, November 18, 2019
3:00-4:30 PM
955 Weiser Hall Map
Graduate student Stella Hao (Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience) will give a talk on "Bounded Rationality of Moral Cognition."


My work investigates moral cognition (i.e., moral decisions, moral judgments, and moral inferences, Yu, Siegel, \& Crockett, 2011) in the framework of bounded rationality. Moral cognition is not only a reflection of personal values and a gateway for explaining human behaviors, but also a field of work that provides insights relevant to the dynamics of human society and the development of artificial intelligence. Thus, it is extremely important to bridge the gap between morality and human rationality while taking into account the ecology of the environment and the agent. Bounded rationality provides a way to approach decision making research by taking into account how rationality is constrained by the characteristics of the environment and the cognitive limitation of the mind. In this talk, I will provide an overview of the current research on bounded moral cognition and present some empirical results of finding context effects in ethical decision making. Finally, I will present some research goals of my dissertation work.
