Artificial intelligence agents play ever more iniluential roles in our lives.[Q16]They do everything from suggesting new friends to recomimending purchases.[Q16]They're even beginning to drive our Cars,Another role that they are expected to take over is negotiating on our behalf in compercal transactions or legal disputes. So it's important to know[Q17]whether using an artificial intelligence agent might affect how we negotiate.
Research indicates that it does.In a new study,participants were told to imagine that they were negotiating for something important to them,like a house.Next,they were told either that they would negotiate for themselves,or they would program an artificial intelligence agent to negotiate for them.Participants then completed a survey indicating how tough,deceptive and pleasant,or otherwise they wanted to be,or one of their agent to be in the negotiations. For example,participants could chodse tb be tough by making an opening demand far greater than what they'd be willing to accept.
They could also choose to express sympathy with their oppohent to appear pleasant,but they could also indicate that day or their agent would strategically express anger toward the opponent to gain advantage,or they coulc opt to convey dissatisfaction with the encounter,so that the other party would think they were losing interest.These are both examples of deceptive strategies.[Q18]Participants were more willing to employ deceptive strategies when assigned an agent to negotiate on their behalf.
Questions 16.What does the passage say about artificial intelligence agents?
Question 17 What does the new study want to find out about using an artificial intelligence agent?
Question 18 What did participants tend to do when assigned an Al agent to negotiate on their behalf?
New research has studied the effects of a Sevenjweek healthy cooking course.Academics measured the program's effect on cooking confidence and self-perceived mental health.Researchers also measured participants' overall satisfaction around cooking and diet-related behayiors.What were the findings?[Q19]Course participants saw significant improvements in general health.They also reported improved mental health and subjective vitality immediately after the program.These benefits remained six months after the completion of the course.
What caused these improvements?Researchers have previously found a link between eating more fruits and vegetables and improved longer-term mental health.This would imply that the participants in the cucrent study may have felt better due to improved diet.However,the study showed participants'mental health improved even if the reported diets did not change after completing the program.
Also,the mental health benefits [Q20]were equal among participants who were overweight or obese and those in a healthy weight range.This suggests a link between cooking confidence and satisfaction around cooking and mental health benefits.
Who benefits most from learning to cook?Gender plays a part at the start of the program.77%of female participants were confident about cooking while just 23%of males were confident.At the end of the program.[Q21]Cooking confidence and skills were equal across both counterparts.This changing confidence could lead to a gender balance in home cooking.This,in turn,could reduce consumptioh of unhealthy,high -calorie processed meals.
Question 19:What do we learn about the benefits the participants gained from the healthy cooking course?
Question 20:What do the new research findings suggest about mental health benefits?
Question 21:What plays a role in determining who benefits most from learning to cook?
What is personal space?We often think of it as an invisible bubble of spaceCSurrounding us that others can't enter without causing discomfort.Research shows however,【22】 that we actually have bubbles of different sizes.Each of these bubbles applies to a different set of people.
The smallest zone called intimate space extends outward from our bodies 18 inches in ever direction.Only family,pets and one's closest friends may enter it.【23】A mere acquaintance entering our intimate space makes us uncomfortable.
Next is the bubble called personal space extending from 1.5 feet to 4 feet away.Friends and acquaintances can comfortably occupy this zone,especially during informal conversations,but strangers apre forbidden.
【24】 Extending from 4 to 12 feet away Cbir us is social space.Here people feel comfortable conducting routine social interactions with new acquaintances or total strangers.
Those are the average siaes of Americas personal bubbles anyway.It is important to keep in mind that personal space varies depending on culture and context.Funhermore,there are signiicant individual differences.As we all know,cultural or individual differences in personal bubble diameters are all too often the cause of discomfort.
How did these persong bubbtes arise?According to researcn,we begin to develop our individual sense of personalspace around age 3 or 4.The sizes of our bubbles are fixed 【25】by onn teens.These bubbles are constructed and monitored by the brain region involved in fear.
