Guest Editors:
* Dr. Andrea Szymkowiak, Abertay University, Dundee, United Kingdom

In recent years, technological advancements, especially in AI, have made a substantial impact on perceptions, cognitions, emotions and behaviour of a vast number of people that use, and are subjected, to this technology. Technology can work in both, good and bad ways. Recent examples include the use of social media to elicit crowd funding for charitable purposes, chatbots to influence public opinion, the pitfalls of fallible biometrics, the influence of recommender systems on decision making, or, indeed, the use of companion robots.

This special journal issue will comprise a collection of papers that tap into the social influence of technologies on its users. For this issue, we adopt the description of social influence as involving intentional or unintentional efforts to affect the believes, emotions, attitudes, or behaviour of others.

This issue will highlight the un-/intended effects technology may have on individuals and societies, with the overarching goal to highlight dilemmas for stakeholders, but also good and bad practices in designing, creating and using technology. Designers and creators of technology systems should ensure their creations are ‘behaving’ in an ethical and transparent manner, consistent with responsible design principles. Users of technology should be aware if and how they are affected by its use to make informed decisions for themselves and others. Papers included in this issue should address the often ubiquitous influence of technology on our personal, social, and professional lives and/or the consequences arising from such influences.

This issue will explore the effects of technology, including AI, on human behavior and the human mind. While the focus is on research papers including qualitative and quantitative research methods, review and opinion papers are also invited. The following list provides examples of relevant topics for this issue, but it is not an exclusive list:

* Social media influences on individuals and society
* Use of virtual (embodied, anthropomorphic) agents and chat bots on user decision making
* Recommender systems
* Chat bots
* Robots
* Stereotypes in technology/systems
* Big data and mis/-uses
* Cybersecurity and human behavior (e.g., fraud and exploitation)
* Game play and in-app purchases
* Dark design patterns in HCI or UX
* Biometrics
* Law/ethics in the use of technology and AI systems
