Dr. Andrew Hampton is an Assistant Professor of Psychology in the Rosa Deal School of Arts at CBU, where he teaches courses in Correlational Research Methods & Statistics, Psychology of Film, General Psychology, and Personality Psychology. He studied Human Factors and Industrial Organizational Psychology while earning his MS and PhD at Wright State University, after completing his BS in Psychology at the University of Central Florida.
Prior to joining the CBU faculty in Fall 2021, he was a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Memphis, where he also served as project manager on the pioneering ElectronixTutor hybrid tutor, chair of the IEEE Standards Association working group for Adaptive Instructional Systems, and project co-leader for a conversation-based AI for education called TalkShop. He still conducts research in the Institute for Intelligent Systems at the U of M.
Dr. Hampton’s research has been focused on technologically mediated communication, psycholinguistics, semiotics, adaptive educational technology, political psychology, and artificial intelligence—the latter also leading him to study the ethical implications of AI from a psychological perspective.
After a year of conceptual development and two years of recruiting, writing, and editing, Dr. Hampton and his partner, Dr. Jeanine DeFalco, have published a book entitled The Frontlines of Artificial Intelligence Ethics: Human-Centric Perspectives on Technology’s Advance.
Published in June 2022 by Routledge Press, a division of Taylor & Francis academic publishers, this foundational text examines the intersection of AI, psychology, and ethics, laying the groundwork for the importance of ethical considerations in the design and implementation of technologically supported education, decision support, and leadership training.
“So much of the discourse focuses on abstract concepts like data privacy or macroeconomic trends, but as psychologists working in the educational technology field, we felt there was a lack of discussion around human-centric issues. AI impacts our daily lives, our relationships, our education, our decision making. These fields are and have been the domain of the humanities, yet we had been shut out of the conversation. Hopefully, this book will help connect relevant ideas.”Christian Brothers University Faculty Profile
